Call to release draft

THE Fiji Labour Party has called on the Electoral Commission to release the draft Electoral Decree for comments from political parties and the general public.

Responding to comments by Electoral Commission chairman Chen Bunn Young that the commission was reviewing the draft electoral decree given to it by the Attorney-General's office, FLP leader Mahendra Chaudhry questioned why the decree was being kept secret.

"The commission should be inviting comments from the people on the draft decree, particularly from political parties which had practical knowledge of such matters," he said.

Mr Chaudhry said the FLP had requested a meeting with the commission to discuss these matters but was still awaiting a response.

In an interview earlier, Mr Young said the commission would finish reviewing the draft in the next couple of days.
