INDEPENDENT candidate Roshika Deo has officially become the first candidate announced by the Fijian Elections Office to be part of this year's general election.

Ms Deo, who on Friday submitted all her signatures to the Fijian Elections Office, said it was a proud moment for her and the Be The Change team.

"We have worked very hard, diligently and with great commitment on this journey," Ms Deo said.

"For us, the journey has only begun and we would not have been able to come so far if it wasn't for the immense support we have received from different members of the community nationwide."

She dedicated much of her gratitude to supporters in Tailevu, Labasa, South Taveuni, Nadroga/Navosa, Ba, Tavua, Rakiraki, Lautoka, Nadi, Nausori, Navua, Suva, the Nasinu area and all the support shown to and for her via social media.

"Our plan now is to roll out our active campaigning phase. Our succinct manifesto will be released later next week.

"Our manifesto has been the cumulative voices of all the people we have met, experts, Be The Change members and those who have participated in active discussions on social media.

"It is a product of vibrant discourse that occurred over a year. Our manifesto is our might, power and voice."
