PEOPLE'S Democratic Party youth candidate Jone Baravilala Rasi wants to help address the issue of unemployment among young people in the country.

As the first PDP candidate announced to stand in the September general election, Mr Rasi said the stage was set for his views to be heard.

"This is one avenue where we can raise issues that affect the young of this nation and one of those issues is unemployment," he said.

"Currently, we have a very high percentage of unemployment and this is an issue that PDP will seriously address if elected into parliament.

"We will concentrate specifically on creating more employment in the primary industries.

"We have a lot of untapped resources in this industry and it is a great place to start when looking for ways to provide more employment for our youths."

Also in the running under the PDP banner is Lautoka businessman Vijay Singh.

Mr Singh said he looked forward to promoting PDP's policies.

"I am very excited knowing that Mr Felix Anthony has a track record of fighting for the rights of workers in this country and his vision has been very clear and I have good reasons to join this party," he said.

"Wholeheartedly for PDP and we will do our best for our country."

Party leader Felix Anthony confirmed more candidates will be announced this week.
