The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission has confirmed that the list that is being circulated on social media that was created by the Fiji Labour Party is totally incorrect.
FCCC CEO Joel Abraham says they have sought clarification and have spoken to the Party Leader, Mahendra Chaudhry, and they have also sent FLP a letter asking them to clarify their stance and position.
He says they note that the post of that price list was developed as a matter of trying to raise some awareness before the budget announcement.
He adds that some people are now taking that price list and in a deliberate attempt to spread misinformation, have circulated this, telling people that the government has increased the price.
The CEO says they have done an assessment, and after their on-site verification, the items on the FLP list should have a zero percentage increase.
Abraham is also calling on members of the public to get their information from trusted sources.
