WITH preparations for the September 17 election well in progress Attorney-General and Elections Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum yesterday briefed two visiting senior diplomats accredited to Fiji about preparations.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum met with the non-resident ambassadors separately, an Information Ministry statement yesterday confirmed.

"The A-G held separate meetings today with the non resident high commissioner for Bangladesh, Lieutenant General Masud Uddin Chowdhury, and the non-resident ambassador for the Czech Republic, Martin Poll," the statement read.

"The A-G explained various aspects of the election preparations and outlined Fiji's plans for a multi-national observer group to monitor the election.

"He said monitors would be required not only on polling day itself — September 17th — but in the lead-up to the election and for a period after voting has ended."

The statement explained that in his meeting with the Bangladesh high commissioner, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also discussed the possibility of Fijians in a number of fields undergoing training in Bangladesh.

"And with the Czech envoy, he discussed the possibility of a closer relationship between the Fijian Ministry of Industry and Trade and its Czech counterpart."

The two diplomats were also handed copies of Fiji's Constitution.
