Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has assured that 2014 September elections will be free and fair, and all parties need to play their part.

Speaking to Radio Tarana in New Zealand Bainimarama says he is in contest with other politicians and will win the battle if ordinary people in Fiji decide to back him.

However, he has stressed that he will not tolerate lies and provocation from other politicians.

“There will be no stirring up of racial hatred here – no more. No more exploiting of people’s fears to create unrest. And that includes telling them (I-taukei) that their lands will be stolen when it won’t be. Other than that I say go for it – say what you like (politicians) and let the Fijian people decide.”

Bainimarama earlier said he will announce his political party next year.
