The FijiFirst Party has praised other political parties for condemning the vandalism of campaign materials.
This comes after reports about FijiFirst campaign billboards showing leader Voreqe Bainimarama which are on display by the roadside between Suva and Lami defaced.
FBC News understands the billboard near LTA in Lami and Vugalei have been vandalized more than three times.
Bainimarama says they don’t condone such acts and those found responsible must be taken to task.
“We don’t want that, we don’t condone that and it’s nice that the political parties have taken up the mantle of telling everyone that such acts is not to be condoned. It’s not good and it should not be condoned.”
Police Chief of Operations ACP Maretino Qiolevu says investigation continues into the vandalized billboards.
He adds a few people have been questioned but none has been arrested yet.
Meanwhile, Fijians who turn up at the FijiFirst family fun day in Nausori today will get to know more about the party’s policies in the lead up to the election.
Bainimarama says this will also be an opportunity for Fijians to meet their 51 provisional candidates.
He adds Fijians will also be able to know what the party will offer when they come into power again.
