NFP says PM using government resources to campaign

July 1, 2016

The National Federation Party (NFP) has accused the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama of using Government resources for the publicity of his FijiFirst political party.


In a statement, NFP President Hon. Tupou Draunidalo said that being the Prime Minister and Head of Government was a separate role from being the Leader of the FijiFirst Party.

DARUNIDALO: “He is not free to mix-up his Prime Ministerial role with that of Fiji First…Mixing up his Prime Ministerial trip with the campaign and votes of Fiji First must end.”

Hon. Draunidalo’s statement came after Fiji Sun published an article on the PM’s two-day visit to Gau yesterday,  reporting that villagers had apologised for not voting for Fiji First.

Ms Draunidalo stated that the villagers of Gau were entitled to state or public resources irrespective of who they voted for.

Government Whip, Hon. Ashneel Sudhakar told Newswire that he was not aware of the statement given by Draunidalo and that a proper response should be obtained from the Prime Minister’s office.

Questions have been sent to the Prime Minister’s office, and this article will be updated when we receive a response.
