EQUALITY and social justice is what Laisa Bale believes in and hopes she is able to achieve it for Fijians.
The Fiji Labour Party candidate is no stranger to social work, she knows what she is talking about.
"I have seen issues which need to be addressed.
"I am not making statements just to make it sound pleasing but I have seen these things happening through my work with NGOs and the United Nations," Ms Bale said.
"My goals are based on the philosophy of social justice.
"We need institutions which provide the best in education, health care, social security, labour rights, as well as a broader system of public services.
"There is a deeper need to ensure fair distribution of wealth, equality of opportunity, and no gross inequality of outcome."
Ms Bale said the argument that there wasn't a problem in Fiji was wrong and in fact, an understatement.
"Have you ever had a chance to talk to people who stand in line at the National Employment Centre for hours," she said.
"We can't continue to ignore such things and our nation's social problem isn't just unemployment. Yes, I want a change in the way Fiji is and that's why it's important for people to vote on poll day."
