Party to open new branch

Nasik Swami
Friday, April 04, 2014

WHILE all registered political parties are gearing up for the September 17 general election, the newly-established People's Democratic Party will launch its Nadi branch today.

Suva branch president Shamal Singh said the PDP maintained a bottom-top approach and practised true democracy.

"Therefore, the branch executives will not be selected but elected by the people present there at the meeting," he said.

Mr Singh said after the launch, they would look at the formation of a branch in Lami and sub branches in Nasinu given the spread and population density.

He also confirmed the party's AGM is scheduled for May 3 at Lautoka's Girmit Centre where a party leader and other executives would be elected.

"Nominations for management board and various executives will also be received by PDP secretariat as per nomination schedules and forms."

The official function for the Nadi branch will be held at the Nadi Sangam School at 5pm.
