AFTER working on it for two years, the Social Democratic Liberal Party will finally launch its manifesto today.

Party media manager Sainiana Radrodro said the launch would be an exciting one for party supporters.

"People who will turn up tomorrow will have an exciting time, there are a lot of economic issues that they will be able to walk away with, and we expect them to be happy with a lot of policies that the SODELPA government will implement," Ms Radrodro said.

She said some of the top policies in the manifesto included the reinstatement of the Fijian Affairs Board Scholarship and the multi-ethnic scholarship.

"We are also giving out some policies that will favour employers and new employees.

"We will also offer policies to assist new homeowners as well as policies that will drive investment for investors in the country.

"We are also assuring workers in terms of the minimum wage limit, we will have policies that will also cover that. We are also looking at policies that will drive economic return and fast recovery; we will also be looking at policies to deal with the health sector."

Ms Radrodro said many people were expected to attend the launch as arrangements were made for people to travel in from rural areas.

The manifesto will be launched at Suva's Civic Centre at 2pm.
