Fiji’s Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will not register his proposed FijiFirst party tomorrow as initially planned.
Confirming the news to FijiLive, he said he was still compiling his list of required signatures.
He needs 5000 signatures to register his proposed party – 2,000 from the central division, 1,750 from the western division, 1,000 from the northern division and a 250 from the eastern division.
Bainimarama stated he was “still consolidating list of registered names and awaiting for forms from the islands.”
“Locally more people want to sign up so we have allowed for more time,” he said.
Bainimarama had earlier revealed to the people of Vanuavatu in Lau during one of his visits that he would register his proposed party on May 22.
