FIJIFIRST party leader Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama says his political party has received interest and support from Fijians.

The aspiring politician made the comment while revealing the names of the 21 provisional candidates who will contest the upcoming general election under the party's banner.

He said the candidates were chosen because the party believed they had the commitment to the objectives, values and principles of FijiFirst.

"They individually bring a knowledge base and experience from their own respective fields of expertise and profession," Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama said.

The leader said the candidates would bring credibility and integrity.

"These candidates of FijiFirst must, as I have said now on a number of occasions, bring about that cultural change to the manner in which politics is conducted in our beloved country.

"The old politics must go. We must have a new breed of politicians who subscribe to the basics of telling the truth, focusing on the future, being development focused, not subscribing to fear mongering based on race, religion and ethnicity and have true loyalty and patriotism to their country."
