NFP policies 'different'

THE policies of the National Federation Party are different from other political parties, says party leader Professor Biman Prasad.

Addressing supporters at yesterday's general election meeting in Narere, Prof Prasad said people only had to read their manifesto to realise this.

"The NFP in this election is a different party, it's a new-look NFP," Prof Prasad said.

"While keeping our enduring values of democracy, freedom, and human rights, this is a new-look NFP. This is an NFP which is going to offer to the people of this country a real choice in this election. Our manifesto is different, our team is different — it is a team you can trust."

Prof Prasad said when they announced the remaining eight or nine candidates, people would see for themselves that NFP had the most multi-racial team competing in the general election.

"Our policies are different, you look at our manifesto.

"We are the only party so far which has offered — since March 29 when I became leader — a very clear articulation of the real concerns of our people in this country.

"That includes the high cost of living, high levels of unemployment, bad economic policies and poor economic performance."

He said the party's stand on indigenous rights, land and the GCC, among other things, were different from that of other parties.
