We will stand alone, we will not merge or form partnerships with any other political party, says All Peoples Party founder and leader Pastor Tuiloma Tawaivuna.

“We will fight the battle alone because we know if we have Christ, we have everything,” he said.

“Other political parties forming partnerships to me is a sign of fear because they really want to oust the FijiFirst Government.

“The main reason of forming a coalition is to get numbers and to get rid of the ruling government.”

While issuing an invitation to people to apply for a ticket to the 2022 polls under the All Peoples’ Party, Mr Tawaivuna outlined what it stood for.

“Mainly, we stand for the Kingdom of God concept or form of governance. “Anyone can stand for our party and we are encouraging Fijians of Indian descent and other races to become a candidate for us.

“We are ready for the elections and will have our own manifesto and constitution, and will field 55 candidates from the four divisions in Fiji.”

Mr Tawaivuna said they would advertise for expressions of interest in the newspapers next month.

“At the moment we have 22 candidates from the West. We will convene a meeting this Friday in Lautoka to give our financial contributions through a soli. We don’t do fundraising and we only give from our own pockets.”
