IN a bid to reach out to its supporters, the NFP will be starting with its first phase of campaigning in the Western Division on Wednesday.

Confirming this, party leader Professor Biman Prasad said the campaign would be a good opportunity for NFP to gauge the issues affecting party supporters.

Prof Prasad said a lot of issues needed to be heard.

"Judging by the number of people that attended the party's convention in Nadi last month, I believe that a lot of people will attend the campaign. I am looking forward to meeting the people from Rakiraki, Tavua, Nadi, Ba and Lautoka."

Prof Prasad said the party would be keeping an eye out for potential candidates wishing to contest the September 17 general election under NFP's banner.

He had earlier confirmed that NFP would field 50 candidates.

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

Mr Prasad said the party would be on the lookout for 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."
