Confident of his choice

VICE-president of the proposed Fiji First party Bijai Prasad said supporters of the proposed Fiji Labour Party in Nadi were strongly following him, which meant the political party of the Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama had the votes of some FLP supporters.

Mr Prasad said the Prime Minister needed someone who had contacts to the grassroots people which was why he was personally approached by Rear Admiral Bainimarama to join his party after a falling out with his former FLP party leader Mahendra Chaudhry.

Mr Prasad said the bulk of FLP supporters in the greater Nadi area still followed him.

"I'm going to just support him (Rear Admiral Bainimarama) because he needs people who have got contacts to the people in the grassroots level," Mr Prasad said.

"People they have that old mind-set that probably it's just another government — only full of promises and people will not see the light that (politicians) have promised, so it's for me to explain to them to open their eyes and see what kind of improvement he (Rear Admiral Bainimarama) has achieved in the short time he has been in office."
