Sun poll Slow start for Felix
People’s Democratic Party leader Felix Anthony has had a slow start in the latest Fiji Sun poll.
In his debut, after his election as leader, Mr Anthony, comes in on the 12th weekly poll at two per cent with Fiji Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry, in the Preferred Prime Minister stakes.
National Federation Party leader Dr Biman Prasad is on three per cent and SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa is now running second at four per cent.
Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama is still way in front although he has dropped from 83 per cent to 77 per cent.
In the Preferred Political Party poll, SODELPA has clawed its way back to second place with seven per cent.
The proposed FijiFirst is still enjoying a comfortable lead at 67 per cent, an increase of three per cent. NFP is at five per cent, PDP at four and FLP at two per cent.
The crowded standings mean there is very little separating the four registered parties.
This is expected to significantly change once the candidates are confirmed and their manifestos released. The parties have not really started campaigning.
In a major vote for Mr Chaudhry, 87 per cent of the people polled say FLP cannot survive without him.
