The Chairman of the Commerce Commission of Fiji believes there is lot of misinformation and mischief making by political parties during their election campaigns who are claiming that the cost of living in the country has risen significantly.
Commission Chairman, Doctor Mahendra Reddy said the parties are spreading false information to the voters which is unfortunate.
Meanwhile National Federation Party Leader, Doctor Biman Prasad said on Sunday that the burden of the rising cost of living has become too much.
He said the responsibility for this lies squarely on the government. Doctor Prasad claims milk is disappearing from the children’s breakfast menu as most families can no longer afford a balanced diet.
He said families juggle between whether to pay their electricity bills, or rent or buy adequate food or pay for school costs.
He claims in eight years this government has failed to address the rising cost of living.
The Commerce Commission Chairman said to deal with this they will put out more factual data for the public soon.
