Focus on development plans

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, August 05, 2014

WORKING at the district and divisional level and facing considerable challenges has prompted former Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki to contest the election.

Cdr Cawaki will contest as a FijiFirst candidate and said his number one priority was development in the rural areas.

"I am hopeful that FijiFirst will be able to get it through this election," he said.

"I will focus mainly on development and the things that I have been doing in office as the Commissioner Western.

"As I said, I would like to see that the divisional development plan for the Western Division is realised."

He said a lot still needed to be done in terms of developing the Western Division, which Cdr Cawaki said was where a significant amount of the country's GDP was from.

"A lot needs to be done in terms of building the capacity of people and we have realised the potential is there. If we have focus on rural growth, much can be achieved."

He said as soon as he heard about the line-up of the first batch of candidates made by Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama, he knew he had to join.

"I needed to join because sometimes it is very frustrating if we want something done or things to move forward at the divisional level, they stop at national level."
