Parties scrutinise supreme law

TWO of the four registered political parties — Social Democratic and Liberal Party (SODELPA) and People's Democratic Party (PDP) — will study the 2013 Constitution before they can make any statements.

"We are not in a position (to comment) because we just got the document from the internet," SODELPA executive Dr Tupeni Baba said.

PDP spokesman Nirmal Singh shared the same sentiments saying their members will meet today to discuss the content of the new Constitution.

Both parties indicated that they would need to study the Constitution before releasing any statements.

Meanwhile, the two, together with the National Federation Party and the Fiji Labour Party, did not attend the Constitution briefing by Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum at Government Buildings on Thursday.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said it was a pity that none of the four registered political parties attended the briefings, where consultative sessions were held.
