Speech by Professor Biman Prasad, Leader of NFP at the launch of the National Federation Party 2014 General Election Manifesto, 21 July, 2014, Khastriya Hall, Suva

After 8 years of military rule on September 17 the people of Fiji will have the long denied opportunity to decide which political party should form our Government. In deciding how to cast your vote, I appeal to you to carefully consider the following: Which party puts the nation ahead of the self-interest of its leaders? Which party can be trusted to rebuild our democracy? Which Party has a solid economic plan to create stable and well-paying jobs? Which Party has a plan to reduce the price of food, medicine and transport? Which Party has a credible plan to help our country to avoid the pain and suffering of further coups?

I will speak in both the English and Fijian language today.

Since our election at the end of March, the party leader and i have travelled around the country and met very many people to gauge your views, leading up to the elections.

Address by the leader of the National Federation Party

Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for the invitation to address you this afternoon.
I am very pleased to be here with Madam President Ms Tupou Draunidalo. Thank you for this honour.
Many of you who have left the shores of Fiji after 1987, 2000 and 2006 probably still feel aggrieved, hurt and probably bitter about the circumstances under which you had to leave our birth place and made homes in this great country.
