A PROPOSED political movement is considering a change of name as it prepares to register for the general election.

The proposed National Youth Party yesterday said it would not register today, as stated earlier.

Its interim president/leader Nayagodamu Korovou said the proposed association would wait for the Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama to register his proposed Fiji First movement first.

He said they were making arrangements to change their proposed association's name and some new and prominent people would be joining them.

"A meeting is scheduled for next week with a very prominent person who has shown interest in teaming up with us," he said.

He said since they were a new proposed political movement, they would need some experienced people for guidance.

Mr Korovou said the proposed movement would now be registered on either May 14 or May 19, adding these were the dates when coups were carried out.

He said the proposed movement was not supportive of coups, be it a military coup or a civilian one.

"We want to tell the people that coup is not the right thing. We don't want any more coups and we have mapped out strategies to prevent it from happening again."
