Some Opposition MPs not open to a coalition

Some Opposition MP’s have voiced their opinions on a possibility of forming a coalition after the General Election.
Prominent member of the Social Democratic Liberal Party, Semesa Karavaki believes a coalition amongst political parties cannot take place because each party has their own agenda.
“I don’t see anyone that agrees with us, that is why we are different parties because we have our own different philosophies and at the moment we are forming different parties that just means that we don’t agree. We have different issues that we don’t agree on.”
Karavaki says he could be open to the idea of forming a coalition, however, he believes no current political party shares the same ideologies as SODELPA.
Meanwhile, in parliament last week, National Federation Party member Parmod Chand said the Party will not form any coalition with any party.
Chand says NFP has publicly stated that they weren’t in a coalition with any party in 2014 and are not in any coalition with any party this year.
He adds the Party is fighting the 2018 Election on their own.
FBC News also spoke with NFP Leader, Professor Biman Prasad who said coalition is not on the horizon.
Efforts to get a comment from SODELPA Leader, Sitiveni Rabuka proved futile.
