Fiji regime objects to OneFiji Party

3:26 pm on 30 July 2014

The Fiji regime leader's political party, FijiFirst, has objected to the registration of the proposed OneFiji party, saying it is likely to be confused with or mistaken for FijiFirst.

Fijilive reports a complaint to that effect has been lodged with the Elections Office by the party's general secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, who is also the elections minister.

He says the word 'One' in the party name is similar to the word 'First'.

Earlier this year, a group tried to stop the regime taking the name FijiFirst, saying it had stolen its identity, but the election authorities rejected the complaint.
