Fiji’s Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has reiterated that government is not monitoring any political parties activities. 

Three registered political parties namely the Fiji Labour Party (FLP), National Federation Party (NFP) and the Social Democratic Party (SODELPA) have recently been calling on the government to stop monitoring what they do. 

Speaking to FijiLive Sayed-Khaiyum said parties were free to do what they wanted and no government officials were monitoring their activities. 

When asked if police officers were monitoring political activities Sayed-Khaiyum said police officers like any other are also voters so if they were attending meetings it does not mean that they were there to monitor anything. 

He said parties were free to hold their meetings and they should not be worried about anything as long as they are abiding by the law. 

Meanwhile SODELPA will be meeting today to discuss their party operations, NFP will meet over the weekend while no word has been received on weather FLP will be having any meetings soon.
