Youths to contest

THE People's Democratic Party may possibly field 10 youth candidates as part of their final line-up, says general-secretary Aman Ravindra-Singh.

He said they were sticking to their commitment of having youths well represented and their inclusion of youths remained a key part of their make up and not for "window dressing".

"Feedback to this has been very positive," Mr Singh said.

"We are bringing in youths because it is our very strong belief and have a 20 per cent minimum of youth representation imbedded in our constitution and will abide by that and are quite confident that we will make that number," he said.

Mr Singh said the party was not "playing politics" and were interested in changing the perception of politics and politicians in Fiji, which he said was negative.

Mr Singh said one of their key requirements for candidates was their involvement in their communities and social work, and the ability to work in a multi-racial environment.
