A Labour government steered by former prime minister Mahendra Chaudhry will address poverty and revive economic activity in the country, says Sigatoka businessman and youth leader Rovil Singh.

He is one of 40 provisional candidates announced by the Fiji Labour Party (FLP) to contest the 2022 General Election.

Mr Singh said party leader Mahendra Chaudhry had a lot of experience in the inner workings of sustainably running the country, in-depth knowledge in every sector and was the best man to lead Fiji back to prosperity.

He said the former prime minister had a proven record of keeping the nation’s economic status healthy.

“He will hold everything accountable plus the FLP policies are such that it will lift many out of poverty,” Mr Singh said.

“A lot of sectors in the country need to be realigned, such as the agriculture sector and sugarcane industry.”

Mr Singh urged Fijians to vote Labour in the 2022 General Election.

“I was a schoolteacher for 15 years before venturing into business and this is the first time I am contesting the general elections.

“I am also the National Sanatan Youth president and I have always advocated for the empowerment of youth, women, senior citizens and people living with disability – in order for them to have sustainable livelihoods through wellness and farming.”
