List of political parties in Fiji

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Prior to the 2006 coup d'état, Fiji had a multi-party system, with numerous parties in which no one party had a chance of gaining power alone, forcing parties to work with each other to form coalition governments.

In January 2013 the military regime promulgated new regulations governing the registration of political parties.[1] Parties are required to have 5,000 financial members, obey a code of conduct, and be named in the English language.[2] The existing 16 registered parties were required to re-register under the new rules, but only two – the Fiji Labour Party and the National Federation Party – did so. The rest were dissolved on 15 February 2013 and their assets forfeited to the government.[3]
