IN a bid to highlight the plight of landowners and resource owners in Fiji and mend any differences between Fijians, the Fiji United Freedom (FUF) party yesterday launched their model manifesto at the Tanoa Plaza in Suva.

The model, according to one of the party's three party leaders Jagath Karunaratne, is a document the party is showing to communities, villages and corporations, detailing a model of governance which places emphasis on human rights and land and resource ownership, among other issues.

"At the moment, this is only a model, we need to get feedback from people. We want people to participate and help shape it up," Mr Karunaratne said yesterday.

"We will continue to talk to people about it — what we can improve on in the model and what actions we can take and their participation is welcome."

He said FUF party was inviting all interested political parties to consider to model, discuss it and if possible adopt the model themselves in the case that they won the election.
