Workman's manifesto

Friday, February 02, 2018

Update: 2:05PM ON a manifesto of housing, education, health and wages, the National Federation Party announced its first 31 candidates.

Appealing to bread and butter issues, party leader Professor Biman Prasad branded his party as the change that Fiji needs.

"In nation-building, it is necessary to be able to come together to talk, deliberate and reconcile our worldviews and then forge a pathway together. We are, after all, only as strong as our weakest link. You will find boldness, strength and united purpose in NFP," Professor Prasad said.

This first batch has many of the party's new faces, some notable ones include media personality Lenora Qereqeretabua, former Police Commissioner Romanu Tikotikoca and controversial former Fiji Television news reporter, Shanal Sivan

"We want to revive our sugar industry and to massively increase our agricultural sector. We also want to hear from the people of Fiji. We want to turn your ideas into action," Professor Prasad said.
