Party to elect leader

Shalveen Chand

THE National Federation Party remains silent on who will be given the task to lead the oldest surviving political party into the election this year.

NFP president Raman Pratap Singh said the party's convention would be held this weekend.

"It would be improper to say who he is now. The media and the public are invited this weekend to the convention and get to see the new party leader first-hand," Mr Singh said.

Long-time NFP member and USP academic Dr Biman Prasad's resignation from his post over the weekend has left many speculating that he is the one to lead the party.

Mr Singh said the party felt an air of change.

"We feel we are getting stronger.

"We have had positive feedback and we feel that NFP will soon have the following it did in yesteryear."

On the party manifesto, Mr Singh said the leader, in his maiden speech, would make it clear what the party aim to do if it came back to power.

Mr Singh said the Electoral Decree and the Elections Supervisor should have been announced last year but the party is hoping an announcement would be made this week at the party's convention.
