ALL civil servants in the four divisions will not return to work until tomorrow.

This was confirmed by the Public Service Commission's permanent secretary, Parmesh Chand, upon the advice of the Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday.

"All civil servants in all four divisions are to remain at home today (Tuesday) and tomorrow (today)," Mr Chand said.

However, he said they were expected to return to work, subject to the availability of water and electricity, tomorrow.

Mr Chand said all those engaged in essential services, as advised earlier, were required to report to work as per the instructions of their respective permanent secretaries and heads of departments.

Meanwhile, Fiji Electricity Authority's chief executive officer Hasmukh Patel said power supply in the Central Division was expected to be normalised yesterday afternoon.

He said work was in progress at the 132kV transmission line from Wailoa Hydro Power Station to Suva.

He said FEA had anticipated restoring power supply in the division by yesterday if the weather conditions improved.

Also, the Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) advised consumers in the west of Viti Levu, Labasa, Savusavu and Central Division to store water for use.
