The Fiji Prime Minister says he is going to start this week to collect the 5000 signatures needed to register a political party.

Fiji Village reports Rear Admiral Bainimarama told a talanoa session in Kalabu that he will sit down with his colleagues and plan the collection of signatures.

The Prime Minister, recently promoted to Rear Admiral after his resignation as commander of the armed forces, is currently in the Lau island group, and says everything else for his party has been finalised, including the colour the party will use.
