'Trivial' issues

Shayal Devi
Friday, May 30, 2014

THE proposed FijiFirst political organisation has responded to the objections filed against them by some political parties.

Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum confirmed this during the second phase graduation of the Ba Women's Forum's Mother of Pearl project yesterday.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum, who is also the proposed general secretary of the proposed FijiFirst political organisation, said they had responded to the objections on Wednesday.

"Well we received the objections on Tuesday through the Supervisor of Elections and we have responded to it within 24 hours," he said.

"Many of the objections in our opinion were raised from the very frivolous to the very trivial matters and demonstrated a lack of understanding of very basic law that people need to know and understand and that has been in existence for decades."

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said they would now await the decision of the Supervisor of Elections on the registration of the proposed political organisation.
