Leader of the National Federation Party, Professor Biman Prasad
The Leader of the National Federation Party, Professor Biman Prasad said they have not said anywhere in their manifesto that they want the Great Council of Chiefs to be reinstated.
Prasad said they have only said that within the first 100 days in
government, they will be calling a meeting of the Chiefs and the head of Yavusa’s to discuss issues in relation to the itaukei administration and discuss issues about other provisions in the constitution within the parliamentary process.
While speaking at a party campaign meeting at Navo Mandir in Nadi, Prasad also made the party’s stand clear on the 2013 constitution.
Meanwhile, Biman Prasad has also confirmed last night that lawyer, Faizal Koya will contest the general elections under NFP banner.
