The Political Parties Commission says three political parties have fielded over 30 candidates to contest the November 19 National General Elections.
They are the United Democratic Party, the People’s Alliance Party and the National Transformation Party of Solomon Islands.
Twelve political parties have registered to contest the seats in the 50-member National Parliament.
Meanwhile, the Solomon Islands Electoral Commission has reminded voters nationwide to remember to vote only once, adding voters should not vote for other voters.
The Commission made the reminder today as only a week is left before Solomon Islands voters go to the polls.
It adds electoral officials will not allow voters to cast their ballot papers after 5 o’clock in the afternoon on the Election Day.
