SALARIES of parliamentarians and ministers will be determined by an independent committee if the National Federation Party forms the next government.

This was highlighted by party leader Biman Prasad at a meeting with supporters in Mulomulo, Nadi, where questions on salaries for members of parliament were raised.

"This was the norm and standard process in the past and that is what we will do when we get into government so that the salaries of members of parliament and ministers are openly and transparently provided to the people of this country and that is what the NFP will ensure," he said.

The economist also urged the government to cease initiating new policies, decrees or changes to policies and procedures until the elections on September 17.

"And I'm also calling on this government to provide their state of finances as per the 2013 Budget up until June 30 2014," he said.

"This is so all political parties and their leaders have access to the state of their finances and in their preparedness to form the next government, it is important they have this information.

"I call upon the government to do that as well in the name of transparency and accountability and good governance."
