THE National Federation Party is ready to submit its list of nominees to the Elections Office after announcing four candidates yesterday.
The four candidates are Kalisi Ratuwara, Anshu Lata, Etonia Lote and Anishini Chand and they take the number of NFP candidates from 45 to 49.
The 50th candidate for the party will be announced today.
In announcing the four candidates, NFP party leader Professor Biman Prasad said the party would file its nominations on Monday.
"We will be filing all our 50 nominations on Monday.
"We have an appointment with the Electoral Commission at 9am so you can expect all 50 candidates to be nominated on Monday," Prof Prasad said.
Mrs Ratuwara, a businesswoman originally from Savusavu, believes the NFP is "genuinely multiracial and has not shirked its principles which are our enduring values".
She said she was a firm believer of the rule of law, parliamentary democracy, freedom and human rights.
Ms Chand, a lawyer by profession, believes there is a need to educate members of the public about the future and thus saw it fit to join NFP because they were already advocating on changes.
Mr Lote, a former schoolteacher and a music composer, said quality education was a need and indigenous rights should be protected.
"I am also very much concerned with the idea of grading quality education when it comes to power," he said.
Mr Lote said children from poor families were the most affected when it came to giving quality education.
