April 22, 2014 7:10 pm
The proposed Fiji First political party has deferred registering with the Elections Office.
The proposed party which was to have registered yesterday is still collecting more signatures.
FBC NEWS understands proposed party leader Voreqe Bainimarama will move to areas which he is yet to visit to gather signatures.
The proposed party is also awaiting signatures from the maritime zones.
Bainimarama will finalise the numbers then apply for registration with the Elections Office.
The Political Parties decree says a party must have at least 5000 members from all four divisions of Fiji – 2000 from the Central Division, 1750 members from the West, 1,000 from the North and 250 members from the Eastern Division.
