November 18, 2014 9:31 pm
The National Federation Party has refused to comment on SODELA’s decision to boycott the special parliament meeting this morning planned for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
NFP Leader Biman Prasad says the decision by SODELPA Opposition members to boycott Modi’s address to the Parliament is an internal decision of the SODELA parliamentary caucus.
He added the NFP parliamentary members will attend the special meeting of Parliament with the exception of Tupou Draunidalo who is out of the country.
Draunidalo has a speaking engagement at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand that was pre-arranged before the announcement of the special parliament meeting.
NFP has welcomed the State visit by Modi and says it is a perfect opportunity for the Government to showcase parliamentary democracy and inclusivity.
