WITH the electoral battle heating up, the National Federation Party has confirmed it is preparing 50 candidates to contest the election.

This was confirmed by party leader Professor Biman Prasad during the party's first pocket meeting in Labasa on Wednesday.

Speaking to about 100 people at Wailevu, Prof Prasad said the party would have about 10 women and iTaukei candidates.

"I have started a new NFP. I want a multiracial team for the election," he told party supporters.

Prof Prasad said the party would be fielding candidates who had integrity and the ability to fulfil their promises.

"This election will be fought on responsible candidates. It will not be fought on the 2014 National Budget.

"Our people are not fools. They know who to choose."

Prof Prasad said for the next five months, the party would strengthen its support base and work towards creating a manifesto that addressed issues affecting Fijians.

"We are ready to stand because of the past seven years there has been a lot of problems in this country.

"The election is a happy moment. We are now going to fight and bring back democracy."
