Former military commander Viliame Naupoto and former police and corrections commissioner Ioane Naivalurua are among the 20 provisional candidates for the 2022 General Election announced by FijiFirst party general secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum yesterday.

Also in the lineup are former Land Transport Authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva and Fiji Disabled Peoples Federation president Peniasi Rawaidranu.

At the announcement, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said he warned party candidates of the “financial consequences” if they did not make it into Parliament. He also said the party had been very upfront with people because some had sacrificed “good jobs” to contest the elections under the FijiFirst banner.
