THE handover parade and celebrations for the new military commander has been re-scheduled for March 5.

This was confirmed by chief of operations Lieutenant Colonel Amani Suliano in an Information Ministry statement released yesterday.

The handover will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks at Nabua in Suva.

Military commander, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama earlier announced he would relinquish the post at the end of February to contest the upcoming election.

Commodore Bainimarama has to resign from the commander's position because those holding office are classified as public officers.

The Political Parties Registration Decree stipulates, public officers cannot publicly show support for or oppose any political party.
