What the politicians say

RO TEIMUMU KEPA

SODELPA

I thought the PM will have more than 90 per cent support. He has been receiving all the media coverage since the past eight years.

The 66 per cent support should be worrying for him. We have not started our campaign proper and we expect things to change looking at the support that we are receiving.

Aman Ravindra-Singh

People's Democratic Party

THE PDP is not surprised with the media pack only promoting one party, which is still a proposed party. The same people

who happen to be the government of the day gallivant all over the country buying votes on a daily basis which is tax-payer funded. If the media was free, people will know the truth.

LAVENIA PADARATH

Fiji Labour Party

This is a fair poll. People are making their choices and time alone will tell the results. Our aim is to return

democracy to the country and we want people to have their say. I am also

thankful to the people who preferred me as the next prime minister.

BIMAN PRASAD

National Federation Party

Bainimarama may lead but the race has only begun. It will be interesting to see the results in months to come.

NFP has just started its campaign. A lot is still left to be done. We will target issues such as the high cost of living, unemployment rate, economic crisis and poor health services.

RATU EPELI GANILAU

Not a candidate

I am surprised that people think of me as such. I am grateful that the Fijian people have considered me worthy to be the prime minister.

I am not contesting the election and I am not associated with any political party. I thank the people for their support.

DR JIKO LUVENI

Proposed Fiji First

I better be careful on commenting on the matter. I am a proposed president and the party is not yet registered.

I don't want to be caught in the soup. I'd rather not comment on this.
