THE Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement (FDFM) says they look forward to meeting Prime Minister and FijiFirst Party leader Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama.

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama will hold a public talanoa session at the Mytilenean House, 225 Canterbury Rd, Canterbury, today.

In a statement issued last night, FDFM New South Wales chapter president Usaia Waqatairewa said they have been ardent critics of the Prime Minister's leadership in Fiji and "hope that discussions this week will result in some positive outcomes as we head towards the general election next month".

"Our supporters are coming from all over New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland to meet at the Fiji Parish Church Hall at 308 Canterbury Road, Canterbury for lunch before moving down to Mytilenean House," Mr Waqatairewa said.

He said the movement also urged all Fiji citizens to attend the session and meet Reart Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama and "ask him any questions you may have as his sole purpose to visit is to campaign for the upcoming election next month "

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama left for Australia as part of his FijiFirst party campaign.

He told FBC News that the plans would be the same as they were in New Zealand where he would address voters, especially his party supporters.
