Fiji Greens unsure of future as registration deadline approaches

Updated 7 February 2013, 18:26 AEDT

Fiji's Green Party has been approached to join up with a larger party as the deadline for the country's parties to meet a set of tough prerequisites approached.

By next Thursday, St Valentine's Day, they have to apply for registration, and show they have at least five thousand members - a target only two parties, Labour and the SDL, have any chance of reaching.

Greens leader Bernadette Rounds-Ganilau tells Bruce Hill that the coup installed military government has made it clear that any attempt by smaller parties to link up with a larger party won't be allowed.

Presenter: Bruce Hill

Speaker: Bernadette Rounds-Ganilau, leader of Fiji's Green Party
