Former Fiji Labour Party member and former Minister for Labour and Industrial Relations Krishna Datt will be available for the 2014 elections.

Datt sees his role as a herald facilitating the entry of a new generation of leaders in a democracy, the hallmarks of which will be partnership and participation.

“I want to be part of the leadership to welcome a democratic government in 2014 and I believe I have the skills, acumen, experience and support to be able to bring all the voices together in a national partnership,” he said.

“If need be, I will lead the group and if the people want to see me back in parliament, I will stand for election if the system allows."

He said he believes he has the sufficient support base to announce such an initiative for an inclusive, multiracial partnership of a generation of new leaders in a political structure to be announced at the appropriate time.

He also said at this stage he is looking at two options and that is to launch a political party or to persuade his support base to move to an existing party which is able to restructure itself and adopt policies and visions which are reasonably compatible with their own.
