Fiji’s National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad has challenged the head of the Fijian Government, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama to a debate in the lead up to the 2014 Election.
He said doing so would underline the government’s commitment to a fair and transparent election process, one that would allow Fijian voters to make the right decision when the country head to the polls on 17 September 2014.
“Mr Bainimarama, if you indeed are ready to stand on your record, join me in a public debate on your record,” Prasad said.
He also called on all eligible Fijian voters to question the government as well as other aspiring persons looking to contest the election and represent the people on what they stand ready to offer the people as an alternative for the betterment of their lives in the present time and future.
“Our people don’t need pity, they need respect and they need their freedoms,” Prasad said.
“Most of all they need fair play.”
