THE Electoral Commission and the Supervisor of Elections has called a meeting on May 20 for political parties and NGOs to discuss the issues affecting them.

A statement from the Fijian Elections Office yesterday said the meeting would also provide the parties and interested NGOs a further report on progress towards the general election.

It also stated the meeting would also provide an opportunity for parties and NGOs to meet the deputy supervisor of elections, Michael Clancy.

"There currently appears to be some confusion about where the ability to make legislative change lies.

"The Electoral Commission and the Fijian Elections Office must comply with the Electoral Decree as our governing law."

The statement said the Electoral Commission and the Elections Office could not amend the decree, or the law, that was the prerogative of government.
