The President of the Fiji Trades Union Congress Daniel Urai says he does not see problems ahead in setting up a new political party despite the union movement's staunch criticism of the interim government.
The umbrella group says it is setting up a new party to provide workers with a political voice as their needs are not being met by the Fiji Labour Party.
Mr Urai says he does not anticipate an issue forming the party despite political party registration rules still to be announced by the Fiji regime.
"We are hopeful that if true democracy will be brought back to Fiji then there should be no problem with the formation of a multi racial political party by the trade union movement. We do not foresee any reason why under the principles of democracy and transparency the formation of a political party by any group in Fiji would be stopped by the current regime."
