Two former FLP candidates make the cut

THE National Federation Party yesterday announced it’s final list of 51 provisional candidates to contest the 2018 General Election.
Party leader Professor Biman Prasad said their provisional candidates were ready to serve the Fijian people.
Prof Prasad said he was confident that the party’s provisional candidates would put up a good fight in the polls.
“These are not ordinary people. No one in our team is. They are ready, willing and able to serve you,” Prof Prasad said.
NFP, he claimed, would bring a government that does not work by intimidating or controlling people.
“It is long past the time for things to return to normal. We need to be able to express ourselves freely, not be fearful and to all be able to participate in the governance of Fiji.
“Our campaign is a battle of ideas. We put those ideas to you 14 months ago. Those ideas have been formulated into policies after extensive talanoa sessions throughout the country.
“We have thoroughly scrutinised all provisional candidates that we announced since February. Some have withdrawn for personal reasons and other commitments. However, they remain loyal members of NFP,” he added.
The names of two former candidates of the Fiji Labour Party — Anendra Prasad and Rosi Lagi — were also announced as part of the NFP’s final batch of provisional candidates yesterday.
