Objection period for applications

THE office of the Political Parties Registrar has a 14-day deadline to publish each application received from former political parties under the political parties decree.

Registrar for Political Parties Mere Vuniwaqa said only three then-political parties had applied for registration prior to the February 14 deadline.

She said her office hoped to publish the applications in one of the dailies this week.

"I have a deadline of 14 days to publish each application before 28 of February," Ms Vuniwaqa said.

She said once they were published, there would be a time-frame given for submissions and objections to the applications.

The objections, if any, will be relayed to the organisation concerned which has to respond within seven days.

A decision to register the party or not will then be made after receiving the response.
