THE Fiji Labour Party yesterday announced 12 more candidates for the 2014 election, taking its candidates list to 39 so far.

Of the 12 announced, two were cabinet ministers in the 1999 FLP coalition government, namely Ratu Meli Bogileka and Ponipate Lesavua.

Ra lawyer Kalasito Maisamoa, former journalist and Labasa businessman Kamlesh Prasad, retired policeman Marika Taova, Bobby Ratish Lal of Labasa, retired pilot Rajendra Singh, former Labasa mayor Paulini Waqaniboro, Jone Ryder Lomara , Jone Bebe and former Nasinu town councillor Chandar Singh are the latest names unveiled by the FLP.

FLP also announced their youngest candidate so far, Varun Lal of Ba, a 28-year-old businessman and soccer referee.

FLP leader Mahendra Chaudhry said their candidate list reflected the vast cultures and races of Fiji and how people had united to ensure Fiji returned to democracy.

Mr Chaudhry said the party would announce more names in the days to come, saying they wanted to contest all seats up for grabs.

Highlighting the need for a post-election coalition, Mr Chaudhry said the biggest intent for both FLP and SODELPA was to unite the people of Fiji.
