Road marshals

A COMBINED effort to reduce accidents and loss of life on Fiji roads was launched in Lautoka yesterday. Operation Rainbow will see the Fiji Police Force and the Land Transport Authority work and share resources over a three-month period commencing from today. Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the Fiji Police Force had the necessary manpower while the LTA would provide the much needed resources to monitor our roads. She said sharing of resources would hopefully see to the further reduction of road accidents and fatalities.

Reform support

The Solomon Islands government has reaffirmed its position to support electoral reforms implemented by Fiji. At a recent meeting between Fiji's Foreign Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola and Solomon Islands Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo, both parties discussed Fiji's progress towards achieving electoral reforms. A government statement said that during his visit, Ratu Inoke also provided an outline of the recent developments on Fiji's new constitution, confirming that following the successful completion of national consultations, a draft constitution had been tabled to the President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau.
