The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has become the fourth party to register under the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree for the 2014 Fiji elections.

The party was successfully registered today by the Registrar of Political Parties Mohammed Saneem.

Saneem said that after the irregularities in the party's membership list were discounted, he was satisfied that the party's application met the minimum requirements of the Decree.

 “As of today, the PDP will be able to operate, function, represent and hold itself out to be a political party,” he said.

The PDP applied for registration with 6,808 member signatures, 539 of which were discounted as anomalies. Total remaining, 6,269.

The party now has thirty days to submit to the Registrar a written declaration giving details of all assets and expenditure including, all contributions, donations or pledges of contributions or donations, whether in cash or in kind, made or to be made to the initial assets of the political party.

Party officials and party candidates will also have to disclose personal incomes, assets, business connections, directorships, gifts, and liabilities.

Former FLP member and Minister for Commerce and Industry in the multi-party cabinet in 2006,  Adi Sivia Qoro is leading the party as its president while former cabinet minister Poseci Bune has been listed as its secretary.

National Federation Party, Fiji Labour Party and the Social Democratic Liberal Party were successfully registered under the Decree earlier this month.
