IN a bid to contest the 2014 General Election, the proposed One Fiji Party yesterday made an application to be registered as a party with the Registrar of Political Parties.

Proposed party chairman Filimone Vosarogo said they had managed to gather approximately 6000 signatures from across the country.

Mr Vosarogo, a prominent Suva lawyer, said the proposed party would heal the wounds of the past and bury the things that had separated Fiji for too long.

"The proposed One Fiji Party is a party that will champion the cause of peace, promote race relation, rebuild the bridge of trust and empower the electorate economically," he said.

He said the proposed party had seen enough disenfranchisement in the nation.

"It is a party that recognises that those things that have kept us apart as a nation is not greater than the things that can and will bring us together in the future.

"We believe that whilst our stories of how we got here may be different, our destiny as a nation is shared and we can harness the spirit of our people to this one call, to leave a Fiji that is better than the one we found."

Mr Vosarogo said the proposed party not only believed in the sovereignty of this nation but in the sovereignty of the Creator over this nation.

"Proposed One Fiji Party is an exciting new political initiative for a new Fiji — one that breaks away from doing things the old way."
