Proposed party waits for funds to register

A PROPOSED political party is trying to arrange for funds to pay for its registration.

The proposed National Youth Party said on Wednesday it had the required number of signatures to register.

Its interim president/leader Nayagodamu Korovou said the proposed party was the only poor party compared to the other registered parties.

"The proposed party was organised by a group of about 14 Fijians with only one having a regular employment and getting more than 5000 signatures is an achievement that we cherish in life," he said.

"Now we are looking for the $5005 needed for the registration.

"Since we can only fundraise after we are registered, it is an exercise of faith, work, determination, sacrifice and our love for Fiji, its people and especially our youths that makes us endure each day.

"We are approaching this as a game of rugby sevens in the IRB competition.

"We are going to tackle each stage one by one and we are looking forward to come out victorious at the end in the name of our youths and their parents."

Mr Korovou said a sponsor in Australia informed the proposed party that money for the registration would be ready by May 19.

He said the proposed party would be able to arrange for the registration fees, as some locals had also indicated they would support in cash and in kind.

Meanwhile, he said there was a need to build a new Fiji where youths were the major focus of developments, thus making them the driving force in nation building.

"We know that free education is of little value if there is not enough employment after youths finish their tertiary education.

"The proposed NYP is looking at creating 6000 new jobs in the first three months in office and more than 12,000 paid jobs in the first year," he said.
