The National Federation Party has finally accepted the results of the September 17 election.

This is following the comments by its party leader, Dr Biman Prasad that the party respected the decision that has been made by the people.

“The people of Fiji have spoken through the ballot boxes,” Dr Prasad said. “The people of Fiji have elected a government for the next four years and we respect the verdict of the people and wish Mr Voreqe Bainimarama and his government well for the next four years.”

Although the party would be joining the Social Democratic Liberal Party to form the Opposition he said they would be very effective in Parliament.

“We will work with all Members of Parliament including those from Government benches to ensure that the Parliament becomes an effective debating chamber on important issues affecting the people of Fiji,” he said.

“We will criticise Government’s policies not just for the sake of doing so, but provide credible alternatives.”

Dr Prasad said they would also be putting forward in Parliament some of the issues they had been campaigning on.

He added the party hoped the Elections Supervisor and Electoral Commission would take into consideration complaints of irregularities by the political parties in future elections.
