The Fiji United Freedom Party has suggested that a proposed political party should not be penalised for any duplication of signatures with another registered political party.

While making submissions before the Standing Committee on Justice, Law and Human Rights, party president Jagath Karunaratne said the submission was purely based upon experiences before and after the last general election.

Mr Karunaratne said the general public should be allowed to change their mind at any given time and sign up for a party of their choice irrespective of whether they had signed up for a party already.

“A proposed party should be registered as long as they provide the number of valid signatures as required by law,” he said.

He proposed that all registered political parties must have a certain fund allocation by the Government.

Meanwhile, committee chairman, Ashneel Sudhakar said they had welcomed submissions made by the political party.
