NFP rules out coalition for September polls

THE National Federation Party has not entered into a coalition with any political party, says party leader Professor Biman Prasad.

And he has denied rumours on the issue.

"We want to fight the election and our wish is to win on our own," he said, adding that any talk of a coalition now did not make any sense.

"NFP has taken the lead on providing credible policies to address the rising cost of living, unemployment and economic policies which will see real growth in the economy.

"The campaign so far has been good. People of Fiji understand the real issues facing them and they are impressed with NFP's policies to address those issues.

"People are also looking at credibility, honesty and trust in this election."

He said questions were being asked about what party leaders had promised members of the public in the past.

"They are beginning to see through the hoodwinking that has been done over the last several years. NFP is confident about its support in this election as people are telling us that NFP presents to them a real choice."
