There was a low turnout at the Unity Fiji Suva rally at the Khalsa Road/Princes Road junction yesterday with fewer than 50 people in attendance.

Party leader Savenaca Narube said they were not at all discouraged by the attendance, adding that they knew the undercurrents that were there in the country that Unity Fiji would take up the leadership position in the country.

He said some members of the public had already told him that Unity Fiji did not have experience, but he replied that their candidates had more experience than candidates from other parties.

“This is a new party. It is not a small party, please disregard what you hear from established parties that we are small,” Mr Narube said.

“A party that is small or big will be determined by you, not by other political parties and that will be determined in your votes for us.”

Mr Narube urged those present at the rally to see the freshness of Unity Fiji’s leadership experience.

Some of the candidates who were present at the event include Ligavatu Gukisuva, Ratu Jope Sukanaveita, Alivereti Nabulivou, Satish Kumar, Dildar Shah and Makera Dawai.

Kalabu resident Jeremaia Soko said Fiji’s financial situation needed to be handled by an expert like Mr Narube.

“The economy of the country is so very important and for that matter we need somebody who believes in God and believes in people and would like to take people forward,” Mr Soko said.

“Fiji needs a change for a true leadership and that is why I will tick Unity Fiji because unity is a biblical word, which means oneness. Oneness is what we want, not differentiating other races.

“If you look at the track record of Mr Narube it is not like other parties. Some from rags to riches, but he is already rich and from that situation he brought himself down to serve the people of Fiji.”

He also told Mr Narube that he had been praying for the party and hoped for a positive outcome after November 14.
