NFP: Fijians live in fear

NFP leader Professor Biman Prasad claims Fijians are living in fear and not able to say what they want to in a free way.

Prof Prasad said teachers, lawyers, taxidrivers and farmers were afraid to say what they really wanted to say.

Prof Prasad said when he was teaching, some of his colleagues would not take part in discussions relating to politics and national stability because of the fear of being victimised.

"I want to remove this fear," he said.

He told party supporters in Labasa on Wednesday the candidates NFP was fielding were not afraid to change the things that were wrong in the country.

Prof Prasad said the party would ensure people were free to express their views if the NFP won the elections.

"What you see is not always the truth. You have to make the right choice," he told supporters.

Former party president Raman Pratap Singh said it was important for the people to understand the new voting system.

"The ballot paper is different from previous elections. It will have numbers. Political parties will be given their numbers," he said.

He said the party also preferred to make changes to the Constitution if it won.
