National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad says, some of the selections for FijiFirst party candidates was questionable.

He said it was surprising that some of them were selected.

While speaking in Varavu settlement in Ba yesterday, Prof Prasad said he believed that their party was the most multi-racial political party.

"We have done a lot to change the image of this party and looking at the pool of candidates in other political parties I still think we have a wide range of people and most importantly a multi-racial one," he said.

"We have the most number of women candidates and our candidates are very credible and capable people from a wide range of sectors."

FijiFirst party leader Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama while announcing the first batch of candidates said they were credible and had a vision for the country.
