Attorney-General and Minister for Economy, Civil Service and Communications Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says he cannot waive procurement regulations.

He made the comments when he was questioned last night by National Federation Party (NFP) parliament member Pio Tikoduadua on whether he waived procurement regulations in respect of tender process at any time for communications and public relations services provided to the COP 23 presidency.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum responded and said: “I cannot waive procurement regulation, the regulation allows me to waive certain processes.”

No supplementary questions were asked after he responded to the said question.
