THE People's Democratic Party believes religious tolerance not only be practised but preached in the country.
Party leader Felix Anthony said his party was of the view that no religion should be imposed over another.
"The PDP believes that Fiji needs to be a secular State where all religions must be respected and their need not to be a superior religion to any other religion in this country," Mr Anthony said.
He said while the politicians were in the heat of election campaign, they should keep the campaigns within limits and not inflame the emotions of the people in this country.
"We need to talk about real issues that impact this country and as we said, the real issue in this country today is about how we can get people live a more decent life and how we can put decent food on the table for our people."
He said following campaigns, the party noticed that the most spoken issue was the rising cost of living as the people were suffering to put decent meal on their table.
"We are talking about extreme poverty in the country, we recognise that people need help and we need to assist them.
"We are not making promises that we can't keep but we are committed and will be committed as a government to assist people who are in extreme poverty."
