AS political parties prepare to roll out their 2018 General Election campaigns, police have advised that every public gathering in the country will require a permit.

Chief of Operations Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu clarified that any meeting in a public place that discussed issues of national interest would need a permit.

"Permits must be applied seven days prior to the proposed event," he said.

ACP Tudravu said if anyone was meeting more than three people in a public place discussing matters of national interest, they would require a permit.

"Also processions on the road with five or more vehicles will need a permit.

"All circumstances are thoroughly considered before the granting of a permit," he said.

Meanwhile, the Fiji Labour Party held its annual delegates conference at Trans International Hotel in Nadi last Saturday.

The conference discussed the party's preparation for the 2018 General Election.

The National Federation Party leader, Professor Biman Prasad, declined to comment on its preparations for the elections, saying the issue was not on the agenda as yet.

Meanwhile, the Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) held a workshop at Viseisei village recently, where the party leader Sitiveni Rabuka was present.
