The National Federation Party has today stated that it is not in a coalition of any form with SODELPA or any other political party contesting the 2018 general elections.
NFP's Leader Professor Biman Prasad says recent media reports that NFP was in coalition talks with SODELPA is blatantly misleading.
He says the NFP's Working Committee meeting held in Nadi in 2016 unanimously adopted a resolution that the Party would not form a coalition to fight the elections.
Prasad says the Working Committee also resolved that those from other parties wishing to join NFP could do so provided they meet all the requirements stipulated in the Electoral and Political Parties laws.
NFP's Leader adds the Working Committee also resolved to mandate the Party Leader to talk to leaders of all political parties, including the Prime Minister, on matters of national interest, good governance, conduct of truly credible, free and fair elections, and welfare of all the people.
Prasad adds that he was removed as the Shadow Finance Minister by the Leader of the Opposition in April 2017 because he had publicly announced their position of not being in a coalition with SODELPA or any other party.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
