Fiji Greens asked to join broader group

5:47 pm on 6 February 2013

The leader of the Green Party in Fiji, Bernadette Rounds Ganilau, says she has been approached by a number of parties to consider joining a united political group.

She won't name the parties, but says they have been discussing the possibility of combining, so they can meet the conditions of the interim government's Political Parties Decree.

She says the group could consist of parties pooling their members and establishing joint offices.

Mrs Rounds Ganilau says the Green Party joining a united group is a possibility, but nothing will happen until after the deadline for re registration passes next week.

"At the moment there is no such thing as a formal united front. We've all talked about it, we've all thought it was a good thing, as long as we didn't lose our identity."
