Reeves to handle electoral reform dialogue

The President, His Excellency, Ratu Josefa Iloilovatu has written to the Secretary General of the Commonwealth and the United Nations to convene a forum in respect of the proposed electoral reforms.

The UN and Commonwealth have responded positively and will facilitate the forum.

Sir Paul Reeves is arriving in Fiji today to meet with the PM and political parties,to formulate the terms of reference and arrange other logistics for the forum to be convened in all likelihood in August.

The forum is being convened to bring together Government and Political parties to discuss and agree on the way forward regarding the Electoral Reform that has been adopted and recommended by the NCBBF.

It would not be prudent to comment any further on this issue since Sir Paul Reeves will now be dealing with the matters pertaining to the forum.
