WITH the looming general election, three proposed political parties are going through the registration process.
According to the Fijian Elections Office, the proposed parties are — proposed Fiji United Freedom Party, proposed One Fiji Party and Proposed Activists People's Party.
Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said his office was processing the details of the proposed Fiji United Freedom Party.
"We had forwarded them the letters of particulars that we have received, they have received and responded to us and we are now working on the response they have provided, we are also assessing the data that they had provided to us in terms of the numbers, we are very frank in terms of the duplicity and validity of the data," Mr Saneem said.
He said the Elections Office would liaise with them this week.
"The other proposed party was the proposed One Fiji Party — we received some particulars in response to their application as well," Mr Saneem said.
He said the Elections Office had forwarded the parties the particulars.
"We have forwarded them the particulars that were received and we attempted to serve them on Friday 25 (this month) however, we could not get anybody at the address provided so we delivered the letter this week Monday so we expect a response probably this week.
"The third one is the proposed Activists People's Party, we have advertised it and we are currently in the period where particulars can be submitted and once we receive everything, we will be liaising with them."
