THE National Federation Party has embarked on establishing its branches in all districts.
NFP general secretary Vishwa Nadan said the Lautoka and Ba branch meetings were scheduled for October 18.
Mr Nadan said the party was required under the electoral legislation to have branches around the country.
"The itinerary has been drawn up for the district branch meetings and we will also have branches on Vanua Levu," he said.
"It is required under the Political Parties Decree that we have branches. We will have the main branches in the Central, Eastern, Northern and Western divisions.
"The branches will be set up in preparation for the 2014 election."
Mr Nadan said the party would call for expressions of interest from interested candidates at the appropriate time.
"The element of doubt is still there in many people's minds about the election, whether it will really be held or not.
"As far as the NFP is concerned, we will wait for the various appointments to be made by the government to get the election machinery rolling further.
"Until the supervisor of elections and electoral commission are appointed, we can't call for expressions of interest from interested candidates.
"The appointment of a supervisor of elections is necessary to set the platform towards the 2014 election," said Mr Nadan.
