THE National Federation Party says it wants more information on the election process.

Speaking to 100 participants at the NFP working committee meeting at Ba Sangam Primary School yesterday, party president Raman Singh said there were only seven months left before the voting public went to the polls.

Mr Singh said the NFP also called on the government to provide a free and fair environment in the lead up to the elections.

Discussions on the NFP board policy platforms for the elections were also held yesterday.

"We hope to release the party manifesto by the end of March or early April. The party plans to hold its annual general meeting by the end of March or early April to elect its office bearers. For these, we will be seeking nominations from branches.

"The party will also soon call for expressions of interest for candidates for the general election."

Mr Singh also called on supporters and party members to donate within their means towards the party's fund for the general election.
