NFP Disputes Report

The National Federation Party has  disputed a Fiji SUN report yesterday titled “NFP raises space issue”.

The report by Farisha Ahmed, said: “Party Leader Biman Prasad yesterday said that they had some issues regarding space allocation with the Opposition Office. We have also asked this should be also put to the House Committee…”.

The NFP said: “This is totally wrong. Professor Prasad never said anything about office space to Ms Ahmed when she briefly interviewed him at the NFP HQ on Tuesday 18th August.

The Party has not raised this issue with the Secretary-General in its submission on the proposed budget for 2016 for resourcing of its parliamentary office. She has an audio recording of the interview.”

Ms Ahmed said she wrote in her notebook Mr Prasad’s response to the question about space issues in the Opposition Office.

Her notes said: “I can only answer that and yes we had issues and we raised it up.”

She then paused and asked him if she could turn on her recorder.

This is the transcript of the recording: “The National Federation Party has already made submissions towards the 2016 budget and we have sent the details of the budget to Secretary-General,”

“We have also asked that this be also put to Parliament House committee which should make the final decision as to the allocation of parliamentary funding for political parties for next year.”
