The National Federation Party has called on the Commerce Commission of Fiji Chairman Doctor Mahendra Reddy to remain apolitical and completely refrain from making political comments.
NFP General Secretary Kamal Iyer said Doctor Reddy’s comments that parties are spreading misinformation about the cost of living violate the neutrality and independence of the Commerce Commission and Reserve Bank of Fiji board of which Dr Reddy is a member.
Iyer said NFP has announced measures to reduce cost of living when in government and has articulated this since the new leader was elected.
He said Doctor Mahendra Reddy must declare whether he is a prospective candidate for the proposed FijiFirst and whether he is already campaigning amongst voters.
Iyer has called on Doctor Reddy to resign if he wants to become a politician.
When contacted Doctor Reddy refused to comment on this issue however he reiterated that the Commerce Commission will put out more factual data on the cost of living for the public soon.
