NATIONAL Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad says his trip to the US and Canada with the party's president Pio Tikoduadua is not to take away the limelight from Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama who is already there attending high level meetings.

Prof Prasad is in the US with Mr Tikoduadua after an invitation by supporters to talk to them on the party's preparations for the 2018 General Election.

"This is the first time NFP leaders are going out to America and Canada to meet our people there and those who are interested in Fiji's politics," he said in an interview from the US.

Prof Prasad said the trip would be an opportunity for him and Mr Tikoduadua to meet party supporters and give them their perspective of what they thought was happening in Fiji.

"Where we are in terms of our progress to genuine democracy, what is the environment in which we as political parties are operating," he said would be some of the issues the party would discuss.
