Prime Minister and FijiFirst Leader Voreqe Bainimarama has claimed that a vote for National Federation Party Leader Professor Biman Prasad is a vote for SODELPA Leader Sitiveni Rabuka.

He made these claims while speaking to Party Supporters at Sukuna Park during a campaign meeting on Friday night.

Bainimarama says that he does not understand why NFP and SODELPA want to bring back the 1997 Constitution.

Bainimarama says that the 1997 is one of the worst constitutions adding now everyone stands in the same line to vote but in the 1997 constitution it was different.

He told the people that no one has done development at the rate that the FijiFirst Government has done.

Bainimarama says that he has advised his candidates not to lie in their campaigns adding that he will never lie to the people.

Bainimarama adds that being a secular state does not stop Christians from being Christians.

Meanwhile, NFP Leader Professor Biman Prasad says that they are not in a coalition with anyone and they will address that issue if it comes and says that the Prime Minister has nothing else to talk about as they have lost the debates.

Prasad says they are aiming to form government on their own and they will continue to campaign on their policies.

He says that this shows the desperation of the Prime Minister and claims that people that voted for him are now turning away from FijiFirst and supporting NFP.

Prasad says that their former leader, Justice Jai Ram Reddy was instrumental in getting the 1997 constitution.

He says that it is nearly impossible to change the 2013 Constitution that was imposed on people.

When asked if they will seek a review of the constitution, Professor Prasad says that it is not on their agenda at the moment and they will contest on their policies.
