Fiji PDP to contest election despite constitution flaws

Updated 28 August 2013, 16:35 AEST

A Fiji political party says it intends to contest next years election despite its reservations about some of the provisions in the new constitution.

The People's Democratic Party is not part of the United Front for a Democratic Fiji, which comprises the other opposition parties, Labour, SODELPA and the National Federation Party, all of whom have not yet decided if the 2014 election will be free and fair.

PDP spokesman Nirmal Singh tells Bruce Hill that the constitution announced by the coup installed military government has many flaws, but participating in the election is the only chance to make a difference.
