The oldest political party in Fiji, the National Federation Party will continue to uphold its policies in looking after its followers and the people of Fiji after Fijians went to the poll to decide the next government.

Party leader Dr Biman Prasad said they would follow the elections results, but said the best government for Fijians was an inclusive government to lead for another four years.

“It depends on the final results. We will assess where the party is in terms of the number of seats and then we will make the decision,” Mr Prasad said.

“I think the day of the elections went well and I think people do have a sense of satisfaction as to how and where they were able to go and cast their vote.

“It was understandable that they did that after seven and-a-half years that now had a chance to vote. It is good for the country as they came in good numbers and were determined to cast their vote to elect the next government

“For me and the NFP, the election is now over. The results are coming in and we should wait for the result.

“We believe the people’s will have to be respected and we will accept the result.

“As the leader of the party, I will take full responsibility for that and we do hope that the next government that will be formed after the election will be an inclusive government.

“It will be the time of getting the country together, a time for reconciliation, time for unity, time for moving ahead and making sure the country progresses further.”

Elections by nature are very expensive, he said.

“It’s expensive for political parties, expensive for candidates; the advertising costs are very expensive. As a party we were able to raise enough funds to do that not as so as compared to the others.

“But we are happy with the support that we had during our campaign in the sense of exuberance that party supporters, our officials and candidates had in respect to how the campaign was carried.”
