National Federation Party Leader Professor Biman Prasad has made it clear that any other political party member that wants to contest the election as a united front with NFP has to resign from their current party and become a member of NFP and then go through the selection process to become a NFP candidate.

Professor Prasad confirms that there have been some discussions with some party leaders like Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry and Freedom Alliance Leader Jagath Karunaratne however Prasad says the NFP’s stand is clear.

Speaking to Fijivillage, Freedom Alliance Leader Jagath Karunaratne says they have decided on the option however there is still no final decision on whether Freedom Alliance and FLP members will resign and join NFP.

Karunaratne says they are still trying to go as a united front with NFP and FLP but things should not be made harder.

Professor Biman Prasad stresses that there is no coalition and there is no guaranteed NFP ticket for another party member as they have to follow the full selection process.

He also says more people are still approaching NFP and these include some FijiFirst parliamentarians who were not announced as FijiFirst provisional candidates.

Professor Prasad has refused to reveal the names of the FijiFirst parliamentarians for now. However he says NFP’s 51 provisional candidates will be announced soon.

We had approached FLP Leader Mahendra Chaudhry however he said he was busy and will comment later.
