THE National Federation Party says its plan to reduce VAT from 15 per cent to 10 per cent plus other remedial measures to bring down the high cost of living is being widely applauded by voters in Vanua Levu.
Party leader Biman Prasad is on a five-day campaign in Vanua Levu with other party members and said he was pleased with the response from the voters.
"We expect this enthusiasm throughout our meetings in the next four days," Mr Prasad said.
He said the momentum had intensified following the successful mini conference for youth in Labasa last Saturday.
"More than 100 youths participated in the mini conference and raised pertinent issues like rising unemployment, high cost of living, an accountable and transparent government and an end to the coup culture."
He said the issues highlighted by the youth and other voters would be addressed in the party's manifesto.
"The NFP sincerely believes that our people's future can only be peaceful and prosperous through their social, economic and political advancement."
