National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad has called on the Prime Minister, Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama, to "stop lumping NFP with other political parties", saying he should talk about the parties and the people who were with him.
Speaking at a campaign meet in Navo, outside Nadi on Friday evening, the economist reiterated that the NFP would fight the election on its own, with a manifesto based on feedback received from throughout the country.
"It is a manifesto that will move Fiji away from the status quo of low growth, high unemployment, high cost of living," he said.
Prof Prasad said his party had very clear policies and claimed the government was panicking about NFP's proposals to reduce value added tax from 15 to 10 percent, which he added, was being well received by the people.
"We understand that this Constitution has been imposed on the people of Fiji and does not have a provision for the Great Council of Chiefs."
He said they believed fighting the election under the Constitution was the best way to bring back democracy and reiterated their plans to review it in Parliament. "When we get into Parliament, the NFP will seek a review of the Constitution within the parliamentary process and the review of the Constitution will not just be about indigenous rights but about other provisions, like executive powers to the Prime Minister and the Attorney-General."
