Party has 60 days to remedy the breach/contravention or face deregistration as a political party

The Registrar of Political Parties has suspended the One Fiji Party for 30 days with immediate effect for contravening Section 26(2) of the Political Parties (Registration Conduct, Funding & Disclosures) Act, 2013 [“Act”].

Section 26(2) of the Act, requires all parties to provide to the Registrar, within three months after the end of each financial year, the record of accounts of its income, expenditure, asset and liabilities, audited by an auditor certified by the Fiji Institute of Accountants.

“The One Fiji Party was required to submit its audited account by March 31, 2016, however, until today, we still have not received anything despite numerous reminders being sent to the party,” said Mohammed Saneem, Supervisor of Elections.

The Party has 60 days to remedy the breach/contravention or face deregistration as a political party.

During this period of suspension, One Fiji Party cannot operate, function, represent or hold itself out to be a political party.

Fiji Sun was trying to reach Party leader lawyer Filimoni Vosarogo but he could not be reached for comments. Repeated calls made to his number remained unanswered.
