The Standing Committee on Justice, Law and Human Rights have been holding public submissions for seven proposed Bills that would be tabled in Parliament this year.

Committee chairperson Alvick Maharaj says the three important proposed Bills that generated a lot of attention were the Electoral (Amendment) Bill 2020, Electoral (Registration of Voters) (Amendment) Bill 2020 and the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosure) (Amendment) 2020.

He said oral and written submissions would be opened until the end of February for the committee to compile their report that would be presented in Parliament in March.

The group is in Lautoka today before moving to Ba tomorrow.
