Pacific Farmer Organisations general manager Lavinia Kaumaitotoya has revealed that she will be contesting the 2022 Fijian General Elections.

However, Ms Kaumaitotoka has not confirmed which political party she would be joining.

She announced her resignation from the organisation last week.

Ms Kaumaitotoya joined the organisation as the Programme Manager in 2016 before progressing to the role of General Manager in 2021.

She said she left the organisation to join a patriotic Fijian team that was keen to rebuild Fiji back to what it should be.

“I leave Pacific Farmer Organisations knowing that I am leaving behind my Pacific family, I have grown to love and to be a part of these last six years.”

She has vast experience in many corporate leadership roles before she became a farmer. She played a critical role in securing long-term funding from the United Nation’s International Fund for Agricultural Development, advancing critical development partnerships.

Ms Kaumaitotoya was also recognised for pioneering work in advocating Women in Agriculture at Stars of Oceania Awards.

Pacific Farmer Organisations Executive Director Kyle Stice, acknowledged Ms Kaumaitotoya’s contributions.
