AUSTRALIAN Senator Brett Mason yesterday met Fijian Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola to discuss Fiji's progress towards the September 17 general election.

In an interview with members of the media yesterday at the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Mr Mason said Fiji was currently going through an exciting period preparing for the election, adding that his discussions with Ratu Inoke were positive.

"It was a very productive and frank meeting, as it should always be between friends," the Senator remarked.

"It's exciting, isn't it? Because even last night (Sunday night) at the airport, I arrived at about one in the morning and there was voter registration at one in the morning at the airport, so that was really impressive."

He said Fiji was clearly showing excitement about current election progress.

"Fiji is very excited about the forthcoming election and I spoke about that to Ratu Inoke and about the preparations and the registration of parties and people, so, there's a lot to be done and I think it's an exciting time in Fiji's democracy.

"As it should always be among friends, it was frank and was very honest and we canvassed all sorts of issues about mutual benefits and interests to Australia and Fiji."
