WITH 14 days away from election day, Fiji Labour Party parliamentary leader Aman Ravindra-Singh claims the atmosphere is that of a national funeral instead of a national election.

After analysing the results of the recent Tebbutt-Times poll, which revealed that 22 per cent of voters were still undecided on who to vote for, Mr Ravindra-Singh said the undecided voters confirmed that many of them wanted a change.

He said these voters were waiting for the final moments to commit to a political party.

“In our meeting with members of the community, we have also picked up the fact that there are a high number of undecided voters,” said Mr Ravindra-Singh.

The Tebbutt-Times poll had Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama receiving more support from the Fijians of Indian descent community in the Western Division compared with the iTaukei community.

Social Democratic Liberal Party had a strong backing from the iTaukei community compared with Fijians of Indian descent.

On these poll results, Mr Ravindra-Singh said they wished not to be drawn into commenting along racial ethnic lines, only to offer that FLP was in the process of rebuilding.

“Our key objective for the 2018 election remains to enter Parliament where we will be a strong voice for the people and will be able to take the people’s fight to the House of Representatives.”
