NOMINATIONS for the seven political parties contesting next month's general election have all been handed in to the Fijian Elections Office.

The One Fiji party submitted 14 nominations for next month's general election.

Explaining why they submitted only 14 nominations, party general secretary Sitiveni Kalou said there were a few who could not get their documents prepared on time and some were not in Suva.

"These ones that we brought in are the ones we submitted."

He said the 14 selected would be able to make an impact at the September polls, adding that some of their intended candidates were not in Suva and could not make it on time.

Social Democratic Liberal Party general secretary Pio Tabaiwalu, after handing in their nominations yesterday, said they were confident in the 50 candidates whose names had been submitted.
