A group of independent candidates spearheaded by former Member of Parliament, Levaopolo Talatonu Vaai, is set to announce their candidates soon. This was confirmed by Levaopolo yesterday who said their candidates include a number of experienced politicians.
“We’re not bringing in people that are trying to get used to how politics works,” Levao said in an interview.
“We only bring in those that already know how to win the horse race. We know exactly what to do when we come in power.”
Levao said they would make an announcement soon. That would include plans for a stimulus package to help people.
“If you look at it, if you give people money they won’t go out burning them,” said Levao.
“People use that money to buy things and when they do, they are paying G.S.T and the money stays in the economy.”
Another area that Levao said his group is focusing on is the welfare of the country.
He said people should be given equal employment opportunities and benefits.
Such benefits include giving each individual at least $1,000 for them to live on and pay for their bills.
In that way, Levao said if there are 180,000 people in the country then government will give that benefit to the people to help them survive and pay for living expenses.
Levao said these and more of their plans would be revealed soon.
