Conducive environment

VOTERS need an environment where they are free to exercise their will, says the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said political parties had a right to ensure that voters felt safe when voting and could decide who to vote for.

"There are already political parties out there who are involved in thuggery and I re-emphasise what I said last week, there are cases of vandalism of vehicles which have FijiFirst stickers on it," he said.

"Whether it's FijiFirst, Fiji Labour Party, SODELPA, NFP, PDP whatever party it is, we urge all political parties and politicians to ensure that the elections are happening in an environment where people feel free to exercise their will.

"People should not be intimidated and that is very critical. The government has done its part, the laws have been put in place.

"The Electoral Commission and the Supervisor of the Elections will now be conducting the elections."
