As Fiji political parties pitched to voters over the weekend, there were last-minute accusations that the FijiFirst party was using fear tactics, saying there would be instability if other parties were voted in.
Speaking at a rally, the Prime Minister, Rear Admiral Frank Bainimarama said a vote for any party other than FijiFirst would be a wasted vote and a vote for Sodelpa was one thrown in the rubbish bin.
He warned anyone who might stir up trouble or put pressure on voters that they would, metaphorically, have a leg cut out from under them as the anti-corruption body was investigating complaints.
But the leader of the National Federation Party, Biman Prasad, says people should remember the history of unrest in the country.
"Who was the commander of the military forces in 2001 when Suva was burning? Who was the commander of the Fiiji military when seven gunmen took the whole government and kept them hostages for 56 days? Who was the commander when Indo-Fijians were terrorised in Suva, in Moniveni, in northern parts of Fiji?"
Voting gets underway on Wednesday and an indication of the outcome is expected later that evening.
