The Fiji United Freedom Party has come up with a model manifesto which it hopes other parties can use if they win the September 17 election.

This was the message from the president of the party Jagath Karunaratne during the launch of their model manifesto at Tanoa Plaza Hotel in Suva yesterday. Mr Karunaratne said the manifesto had been discussed with the people of Fiji.

“This is a model manifesto in the sense that we are presenting a model that has been discussed with many people around Fiji, especially the traditional leaders and the national leaders and this model has been widely very well received and accepted and we are in the process of taking it into many interior and rural areas,” Mr Karunaratne said.

He hopes other parties would be more open to their model manifesto as a template for their own.

“The good thing about this model is that you can use it as add on. You can basically use it with the government or you can use it as a separate entity but both ways it can bring the people together and satisfy them.”

The party’s candidates will be announced on Friday.

Potential party leader Nayagodamu Korovou was also present at the launch yesterday.
