Young blood for party

Avinesh Gopal
Tuesday, August 12, 2014

THE Fiji Labour Party has appointed two new office bearers.

Suva businessmen Arvin Datt and Anendra Prasad were respectively appointed as the party's vice-president and treasurer.

They confirmed to this newspaper their new appointments at the party's delegates conference in Suva recently.

They are the party's candidate nominees for the general election.

Mr Datt, 39, said his appointment as the FLP's new vice-president came as a surprise to him.

"I felt overwhelmed that the party's delegates had the confidence in me and appointed me as the new vice-president," he said.

"I think this new appointment gives hope and takes away the perception that there is no faith in the younger generation to hold senior posts in political parties."

Mr Datt said party leader Mahendra Chaudhry had mentioned during the delegates' conference that the party's national council and composition of the delegates would be restructured.
