Rakuita likely to join new party Former Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Mereseini Rakuita has hinted that she may stand for another political party in the 2022 General Election.

It is understood that Rakuita is involved in the forming of a new political party which is to be called Future Generations.

The former FijiFirst candidate while speaking at a workshop on Regional Women in Leadership earlier this week said she is not done with politics yet.

She said women’s participation in politics is critical and the new electoral system greatly enhanced the participation of women in political space.

“Just look at the number of women Parliamentarians and that is due primarily to the electoral system we have in place,” she said.

“There are a lot of women who had the capability to stand in the next general election. I think it’s important for women who are thinking of standing for national elections to come out.

“There are a lot of women out there that have the capacity to stand for national elections and we know the social norms that can affect a woman’s decision.

“There are non-profit organisations and Elections Office that political parties can render advice from that can assist you to make an informed decision about standing for election.

“All the policies, programs and laws in place would not serve their purpose if women themselves did not take the first step.

“I am not done with politics yet. I will reserve my comment on that, but I’m not done with politics yet,” she said.

She handed in her resignation in August this year due to personal reasons and new opportunities.
