FIJIFIRST party offers no hope for change, claimed National Federation Party (NFP) leader Professor Biman Prasad.

Labelling the manifesto released by FijiFirst as “a sad, tired manifesto from a sad, tired Government”, Prof Prasad claimed FijiFirst had done nothing to raise low wages or lower the cost of living.

“For two years we have been talking to the people and we know what they want from their Government,” he claimed.

“FijiFirst has nothing new for housing, education and health. Right through this election campaign, FijiFirst has only attacked others.

“They released their manifesto late so others could not criticise it during the election blackout period. They do not want the people to talk about it.”

Prof Prasad said NFP had been talking about its policies and plans for months.

“NFP released its manifesto early for everyone to see and discuss. Some people have criticised it, and that is okay, because we want to hear from the voters.”
