NOMINATIONS for the parties and independent candidates to contest next month's general election closed midday yesterday.

The FijiFirst party was the first to submit its nominations last Friday with 50 candidates.

The Fiji Labour Party submitted 42, the National Federation Party, the Social Democratic Liberal Party and the People's Democratic Party all submitted 50 names, while the One Fiji Party submitted 14 and the Fiji United Freedom party submitted four names only.

The proposed independent candidates who have submitted their nominations were Roshika Deo and a businessman Umesh Chand.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem declared the nominations closed at midday with the last two parties to submit their nominations being the One Fiji party and the PDP.

"We will now be processing their nominations to confirm their compliance with the decrees under the Constitution and we will not accept anymore nomination," Mr Saneem said.

"If one person hasn't nominated, we will not accept his or her nomination to contest the election.

"We will now proceed with the verification and we will announce the nominations as they are cleared."

Any person who wants to object to any nomination can do so by 4pm today.

He said there was a form available at the Fijian Elections Office and had to be submitted together with the required fees by the Electoral Commission.

"We need to also inform the public that this week, we intend to have the draw of the national candidates list and that draw will happen as soon as the decision on the appeal and objections are filed and we will inform everybody accordingly."
