NFP stands to form a coalition post-election
November 1, 2018 5:01 am
The National Federation Party says it will not rule out talking to any political party in forming a coalition post-election.
NFP leader Professor Biman Prasad while speaking at a rally in Nausori last night says they will talk to all parties in contention to form the next Government, if the need arises.
Prasad has revealed to his supporters that they have not as yet decided on their stand for a post-election coalition.
“It’s actually quiet silly for people to keep asking us whom are we going to form a coalition after the election. It’s like saying go behind the voters and make a decision.”
Prasad also for the first time publicly revealing that his party stands ready to talk to all parties post-election if push came to shove to form the next Government.
“Which party if we have to vote will ensure that some of our policies that we have been campaigning on will be respected and we are not ruling out talks with any political party and as I said I have no hesitation to talk to any political party leader in the interest of the nation when the time comes including Frank Bainimarama.”
The NFP is also tonight launching its manifesto in Nausori, which will contain all policies the party will bring in should it form the next Government.
