Ready to influence voters

THE Fiji United Freedom Party says it is ready to influence the voters to believe in it and finally vote for its candidates come September 17.

"Being the only party that was rejected and came back again means a lot to us because it has strengthened our unity and increased our domain," said a proposed leader of the party Nayagodamu Korovou.

"With the election just a month away, our manifesto will concentrate on the very important issues that do affect ordinary Fijians.

"We stand for all Fijians, especially the poor people and our youths and also want to promote and protect our business community.

"Being a totally poor party we will need your support in prayer and kind towards our campaign in this one month in front of us.

"We are determined to reduce the high cost of living so that a person who earns $80-$100 a week can be able to buy decent food and have some left over for his/her family." Mr Korovou said the party's manifesto would focus on reducing cost of living by reducing food price, water bill, electricity bill by 50 per cent within the first year in office if the party forms the next government.

"We will have a Ministry of Religion and also provide budget allocation in that each religious organisation can apply for a grant of $10 per member."
