Coalition possible

Avinesh Gopal
Wednesday, August 13, 2014

A NEWLY-REGISTERED political party has not ruled out the possibility of forming a coalition government with the FijiFirst party if it wins parliamentary seats in the general elections.

The new party had to go through a name change and other difficulties before it was finally registered as a political party recently.

On the possibility of a coalition with any political party to form the next government if they win seats come September 17, a proposed leader of Fiji United Freedom Party, Nayagodamu Korovou said: "We are looking at FijiFirst because we believe in them taking Fiji forward. Coalition will be a possibility."

Mr Korovou ruled out any possibility of forming a coalition with the Social Democratic Liberal Party and the Fiji Labour Party, saying "their policies are totally different."

He said there was a possibility of coalition talks with the National Federation Party, People's Democratic Party and the One Fiji party after the elections, if FUFP was successful in bagging some parliamentary seats.
