THE FijiFirst party is looking forward to announcing its manifesto and second batch of candidates in two weeks time.

Speaking at the party campaign at the Community Hall in Levuka, party leader Rear Admiral (Ret)Voreqe Bainimarama says the party's manifesto will be out in two weeks along with the other 29 members of their party who will stand for election.

"We have announced 21 in the last couple of days and we will announce the next 29 in the next couple of weeks," he said.

The manifesto, he said would be much the same to what they had been doing in the past seven years.

"Political parties have been saying that this Constitution is by this government, for this government and for FijiFirst.

"And I want to say that this is not true.

He said the Constitution was put together by the people and the government of the day to sort out the problems that Fiji had in the past, problems dating back 20 to 30 years ago.

"We don't want to go back to those days and the only way we can do that is by coming up with a Constitution that will allow equal citizenry and getting rid of those policies in the past."
