NADI lawyer Faizal Koya, the son a former opposition leader Siddiq Koya, has been approached by the National Federation Party to consider being a candidate.

This was confirmed by party leader Professor Biman Prasad in an interview yesterday.

Mr Prasad said Mr Koya's father took over the party leadership following the death of its founder AD Patel in October 1969.

He said Mr Koya had been following in the footsteps of his dad and was an ardent supporter of the party.

"I approached him last week. He has been a strong party supporter," Prof Prasad said.

He said having Mr Koya as a candidate would be great for the party as the young lawyer had strong ideas and perspectives.

Prof Prasad said he would meet Mr Koya, who trained as a lawyer in Britain, this week to further discuss available party positions.

When contacted yesterday, Mr Koya confirmed being approached by Prof Prasad.

"It's true. I have been approached by NFP," he said.

Mr Koya said he would confirm his decision later.

"I am supporting the party and trying to get things done."
