Fijifirst Receives 200 Applications For Ticket As Provisional Candidates

FijiFirst has received 200 ap­plications from people show­ing interest to stand for the political party in the 2022 General Election.

FijiFirst general secretary Ai­yaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the party would complete its interview of ap­plicants before an announcement of names.

 

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said people who will be selected to be provi­sional candidates for the political party are those who uphold values and principles.

“We interviewed lots of people last week. We have done inter­views in Nadi and from next week we will be having interviews in Lautoka, Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki,” he said.

 

“Last week, we spent two days in Vanua Levu to interview people who have shown interest to stand for the political party in the up­coming election.

“We should be finished very soon and we are actually happy with the caliber of people who have applied.

 

For us, values and principles mat­ter.”

He did not reveal as to when the party had planned to announce its first batch of provisional candi­dates.
