Former Commissioner Western, Joeli Cawaki.

Former Commissioner Western Joeli Cawaki hopes to decentralise government services if elected in the upcoming elections.
“My main focus will mainly be on development, I would like to see the development in the Western Division realised,” he said.
Mr Cawaki is likely to join FijiFirst as a prospective candidate nominee.
He said it was imperative that the development plans already in existence were implemented.
“If we succeed with this plan then we can stop urban drift; it will bring services to our rural people in terms of education and health services and also bringing the market to people in the rural areas,” he said.
“The bigger plan that we have is to establish Korolevu, Keiyasi, Bukuya, Nadarivatu, Waimicia and Namarai as small townships.
“These townships will include the District Officers office, Agriculture office, Health Centres and Fisheries Office,” he said.
“As of today we have the land, the Government has leased at least 20 acres in those areas.
“But what is left now is to build; the money that was supposed to be used for building has been diverted for rehabilitation following the past flood and cyclone that we have encountered,” he said.
The total damage by Cyclone Evan was worth $25million, which was to be used in the township.
Mr Cawaki spent his last day as Commissioner Western officially launching the National Colgate Toothbrushing day, yesterday.
Meanwhile Deputy Commissioner, Luke Moroivalu will be acting as Commissioner Western from today.
