NATIONAL Federation Party president Tupou Draunidalo is thankful that winning three seats in Parliament will allow the party to seek amendments to certain decrees and also raise the issue of reducing tax from 15 per cent to 10 per cent.

She said those certain decrees included the Media Decree, the decree involving unions and human rights.

“Well as you know there are some decrees that we felt were very harsh, the Media Decree the decree involving the unions, the other decrees dealing with human rights issues and lives of people, those we would like to propose amendments in parliament and hopefully work with the majority of parliament to make sure that those amendments are more better for investment in the country,” Ms Draunidalo said.

Party leader Professor Biman Prasad said they would like to be the voice of every person in Fiji in terms of critical issues affecting Fijians, especially ordinary Fijians.

“As you know, reducing VAT is one of the very credible proposal based on the fact that we had one of the highest cost of living ever in the country. VAT is, you know, a regressive tax and we do hope that the government will consider our proposal and reduce VAT from 15 to 10 per cent when they do the next budget for this year,” he said.

SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa yesterday confirmed her 15-member party officials who would form the Opposition team in Parliament wwould be meeting with the three NFP members in the coming days.
