A large crowd braved the hot sunny west to attend the FijiFirst party family fun day at Churchill Park in Lautoka yesterday.

People of all ages and races showed support for the party as they listened to what the party leader had to say.

Party leader Voreqe Bainimarama acknowledged the support of the people of Lautoka and said it was always good to visit the Sugar City.

He spoke of the party manifesto which was released yesterday and told the people, if voted into power; Fiji would reach greater heights with progress in all sectors of the country. Supporters expressed concern over the racial divides in the country especially at this time of the year.

“My government believes in equality and we advocate and promote equal citizenry in the country,” said Mr Bainimarama.

He spoke on land security, economic and health security of the country. He said the Western Division had continued to show support for the party and this was evident through the 20 candidates standing from the division.

For Keasi Koronaca, 76, she believed in the manifesto of the party and knew it would move Fiji ahead.

“This party assists elderly people like me and is a testament for the voice of the people,” said Ms Koronaca.

Another supporter, Owen Handyside, 38 said the manifesto was very much driven to accommodate the needs of the people.

“I came today and I was given the manifesto., it is very much driven towards the economy, helping in education for our children,” said Mr Handyside.

“Other parties have come and gone, it is time to give this new party a chance,” he said.

Faiyaz Ali said one had to be mindful of the developments in the country over the past seven years.

“The party manifesto is the best, so I urge the people of Fiji to vote wisely come the September 17 elections,” said Mr Ali.
