Publish date/time: 19/02/2013 [13:13]

The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption is now conducting investigations in the Western Division in relation to certain allegations leveled against a proposed political party of fraud while collecting member signatures.

FICAC said the claims have been made by some residents of Ba. 

These are in relation to some agents impersonating Government elections officials to collect signatures for the particular proposed party.

Police are also investigating the matter.

The complainants claim that they only showed their voter ID cards and signed the forms thinking that it was a check by the Elections Office only to realize later that they were being signed up as members of a proposed political party.
