The Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP) successfully filed political party registration today on August 9th, 2011 at 10.00 am before the office of the Electoral Commission and Mr. Hendrick Gappy, the Chairman of the Commission received the documents, personally.
Mr. Gappy received Mr. Christopher Gill, Leader Pro Tem of the Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP) along with the documents, which was evidenced by a acknowledged receipt signed by Mr. Gappy dated and timed.
The SFP will now wait for a reply by the Commission.
Mr. Gill said that he does not expect any unreasonable delays in the certifying of the SFP as a political party in Seychelles.
The presence of SFP will solidify the Seychelles democratic exercise by providing the Nation with a solid and serious opposition that will critic, but will also provide solutions and foster dialogue, if possible. Mr. Gill says he defines dialogue as being an exchange of ideas but also concrete compromise which is necessary in Seychelles today if Democracy is not to fail at this hour.
Dialogue must be public and not behind closed doors, to exclude the Public as has been the practice by the opposition and Ruling Party in the past.
