THE National Federation Party has received more than 50 applications from individuals wishing to stand as a candidate for the party in the September 17 general election.

Confirming this, party leader Professor Biman Prasad said, they would hold a selection committee meeting to discuss the levy each candidate would have to submit.

"We haven't decided but the selection committee is going to meet and we are going to decide that," he said.

"They will also decide the rules of engagement for the candidates."

Prof Prasad said the candidates list was looking good.

"You know what happens when people send in expressions. We have to go to them and find out who they are and their background."

He said the number of seats the party would contest was still open.

"This is still open for discussions. While NFP has received significant expressions of interest, the party is still making up its mind whether it will field 50 or less candidates," Prof Prasad said the party was progressing well financially.

"We have a budget and we are working on it and there are fundraising drives that are happening throughout the country.

"We are confident that we will meet the budget that we have targeted."
