Taxpayer funded Fiji First on the hand has delivered a lacklustre crop of candidates, several carrying baggage and having conflicts of interest, damaging the party before it even hits the poll.
MIDA stalwart Matai Akauola has been widely criticised for being a candidate. Rightly so: how can he go from dictating media do's and don'ts to standing as a candidate for the party of a military dictatorship?
We are not surprised. He had confirmed last year he was going to stand, but as an Independent: guess the lure of fame and fortune was too much for him.
|Ashneel Sudhakar: So much for 'diversity, integrity and meritocracy'.|
And a racist post from his Facebook that Fiji Sun journalist Jyoti Pratibha likes.

Nemani Bainivalu: Still roaming free despite assaulting a member of the public last month.

Dear Leadership Fiji colleagues,
I wish to bring to your attention that I have been a member of LF2010 group and have taken a quantum leap this year.
As you are aware that I have decided to contest the 2014 General Elections and represent you in Parliament.
This becomes my next biggest challenge to secure adequate votes to make it at that level.
The journey is no easy task given a significantly tough competition amongst many players.
I have opted to contest this election with FIJI FIRST due to many reasons.
Many of you will have your personal understanding and awareness of current situation in the country.
This is the time to make the right choice and the right decision. Our countries future depends on YOU as the power is in
the hands of the voters.
So make the right decision for the best interest of this beloved country.
I seek your support for this worthy course to steer the country towards a more progressive and responsive modern FIJI.
I know we can do it.......we should move now and transformation is imminent.
This nation is destined to grow into the best south pacific Island nation which we all have dreamt of. This dream will
become a reality soon.
Everyone is entitled to his/her choice and that choice will determine the countries future. Its in your hands.
For my family brothers and sisters out there- please VOTE for me so I can go in there and help the nation develop the way we want it.
I know all about FEA and it becomes easy to handle what you know. So lets make the change....I need your votes.
I have had tremendous support and accolades in the last few days and every comment is deposited to my data base.
For those that have supported me, your favorable comments will stay with me ever.
You can view your comments if you ever get to visit me in the Ministers Office....all LF members welcome.
But I need your support. You also have the right to support the party of your choice. But make the right choice and the right decision for FIJI.
Your support and comments are welcome.
In 2012 - I gave Fea the Business Excellence Presidents Award
In 2013 - I gave Fea the 18th National Quality Convention GOLD Award,
In 2014 - I will take Fea to the Parliament
In 2015 - I would have given Fea another Presidents Award.
I will send you updates as we get closer to the elections....but be prepared to change and move for a more vibrant Fiji.
All the best for you / Leadership Fiji / and our beloved country.
May God bless FIJI.
