Fiji's prime minister Frank Bainimarama says he thinks the opposition National Federation Party is now a racist party.
Mr Bainimarama, who is also the leaders of the FijiFirst Party, made the comment to FBC News following reports that the NFP and other opposition parties might form a coalition.
Mr Bainimarama described the NFP as racist because they are in the cane fields for the vote of the Indo-Fijians.
He said there is no possibility of such a coalition given that the party policies will not align.
The Fiji Times reported that Sodelpa, the Fiji Labour Party and the NFP were in talks to forge a coalition ahead of the next election due by 2018.
