FIJI Islands Council of Trade Unions general secretary Attar Singh has clarified that he will seek to contest the 2014 elections.
He made the comments after an interview with a local television station that gave the impression he would not.
"The TV and radio reports since yesterday evening have incorrectly created the impression that I was putting my political career on hold and that I have decided not to contest the 2014 elections," Mr Singh said, adding that he made no such statement during the interview. In fact I said that I would like to contest the elections to represent the interests of my members," Mr Singh said. "Throughout my interview I was critical of the recent Political Parties Decree and the several restrictions it placed on free exercise of political rights."
