Fiji First's Secretary General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, echoed that message of stability and said the party spent a great deal of time correcting scare mongering.

He also blamed other parties for activities such as the slashing of banners and posters and vandalism of cars.

"If this is the kind of thuggery that an alternate government is involved in then that's the type of Fiji they actually want to have, where people will need to live in fear, and people will be divided along communal lines, etc, just so that a handful of people can win seats in parliament."

Two of the main opposing parties say Fiji first keeps bringing up instability to put fear into voter's minds.
