“NOT Free and Fair”

Five political parties have made a comprehensive submission to the Electoral Commission on various electoral changes they claim necessary to ensure free and fair elections in 2018.

In a briefing this afternoon, the parties led by National Federation Party leader Biman Prasad said they were certain the changes would not be implemented, hence the 2018 General Elections would not be fair.
