THE Fiji Elections Office confirmed receiving six objections regarding the registration of the proposed FijiFirst political organisation.

Supervisor of Elections and Registrar of Political Parties Mohammed Saneem said they now awaited a response from the proposed FijiFirst political movement before proceeding.

He said the determination on the registration of the proposed party would be made after the response was analysed.

According to the Registration of Political Parties Decree, a proposed political party has to get its 5001 votes then advertise before going to the Elections Office to register.

After this happens, there is time given for objections after which a reply will be sought.

From the time the party filed its application, it takes 28 days to register.

In the case of FijiFirst, the proposed organisation submitted its application on May 5.

According to the registered political parties — FLP, SODELPA and NFP have submitted their objections.
