Mini forums for election awareness

Nasik Swami
Wednesday, March 19, 2014

AS part of its awareness program in the lead-up to the general election the Australia-based Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement will host a set of mini forums starting from today.

A statement from the FDFM yesterday said the key speaker at the forum would be Labour leader and former prime minister Mahendra Chaudhry.

The statement said Mr Chaudhry would provide an update on the political situation in Fiji and ways the country could be assisted in ensuring it returns to parliamentary democracy after the September, 2014 general election.

The FDFM was established in April 2009.

The key objectives of the FDFM are to operate and function as an umbrella organisation to co-ordinate and actively advocate a campaign for the restoration of democracy in Fiji.

The FDFM exists to ensure the restoration of democracy in Fiji is put at the forefront of discussion, debates and other engagements at all levels from political to the grassroots people and organisations.

The statement said FDFM had been engaged and lobbying the Australian Government to pressure the Fijian Government into conducting fair elections.
