F.A.S.T. appeals to Aana Alofi 1 and Aana Alofi 2 voters

The Fa'atuatua i le Atua Samoa ua Tasi (F.A.S.T.) party roadshow hit Aana Alofi 1 and Aana Alofi 2 on Friday, with a fresh plea to voters to change the Government. 

First stop was the Fesola'i Tuigamala residence in Faleasi'u where many flooded the event with anticipation on Friday morning waiting to listen to what the new political party has in store for the country, as well as offer support for their running candidate in F.A.S.T., Fesola'i Tusiupu Tuigamala. 

It was only the party's first stop for the day.

Following the convention with Faleasi'u and Aana alofi 1, the party made their way to meet another large crowd in Fasito'o uta, Aana Alofi 2.

Held at the Tauauvea residence, the room filled with villagers cheered on the political party as they revealed their long term agenda and seized the opportunity to meet some of the candidates running from F.A.S.T.

Aana Alofi 2's candidate from fast is a female, mother-of-nine, Lolomatauama Eseta Mataituli.

Party leader, Laauli Leuatea Schmidt said appealed to the crowd that they need their thoughts and possible solutions on the issues arising in the country to build their final manifesto, expected to be launched soon after the roadshow is complete.

"This is why, our constituency, we have come to hear your wisdom and knowledge; voice your concerns, voice your feelings, voice your opinions and we shall see where exactly you are at this moment in our country," he said.

Laauli also appealed to the constituency to use their votes wisely, not to be fooled by the recent developments happening.

"My advice is, accept the gifts, but make sure your decision is correct. We are not here to lure your support with money and wealth, that is not the spirit," he said.

"And whatever you may have heard from the Prime Minister and his scoffs, may the Lord forgive him, but we aim to explain and clarify what we aim to do.

Fiame Naomi Mataata, former Deputy Prime Minister also discussed the three new laws in Faleasi'u maintaining that it greatly affects the country's Constitutions.

The controversial Lands and Titles Bill 2020, Judicature Bill 2020 and Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020, were recently passed last month. Together they create an entirely L.T.C., the decisions of which would not be subject to review by the Supreme Court.
