A FIJIAN woman of Indian descent has been appointed as the interim secretary of the proposed National Youth Party.

The proposed party is being led by school teacher Nayagodamu Korovou and its interim president, interim vice presidents and interim treasurer are university students.

It has made an appointment with the Elections Office to file its registration at midday on May 23.

However, Mr Korovou declined to reveal the names of the interim office bearers yesterday, saying the proposed party would wait until next Friday.

"But I think it's the first time that a Fijian woman of Indian descent has been appointed as the interim secretary of a proposed political party," he said.

"She is in her early 30s, originally from Navua but living and working in Suva now.

"The other interim office bearers are students of a university in Suva."

Mr Korovou said the proposed party had secured the money needed for registration fees and arrangements were in place to register the proposed NYP next Friday.

"After filing our registration papers, we will have to see whether we have to pay for the publication of things in the newspaper or the Elections Office will."
