Singh to step down

Nasik Swami
Saturday, March 29, 2014

AFTER representing the National Federation Party for nine years, Raman Pratap Singh will step down as its leader during the party's AGM in Nadi today.

Confirming this, Mr Singh said though his decision was a hard one, he wanted to see fresh faces lead the party.

"I want to give chances to new blood, put fresh faces in the leadership and I will take a back seat," he said.

However, Mr Singh confirmed he would contest the September general election for the party.

"This will give me time to prepare and I will be more relaxed to contest the general election."

Mr Singh claimed he still had a good support base.

Professor Biman Prasad has been tipped to take over leadership of the party.

The party's AGM will be held at the Nadi Sangam Primary School starting at 10.45am.

The guest speaker at the function will be former vice president Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi.
