The working group says the interim government’s present position on when the next elections in Fiji could be held is a modification of Fiji’s commitments to Forum Leaders and Foreign Ministers to conduct elections by March 2009.
The group made the observation in a statement issued this afternoon following a meeting in Suva last week, attended by senior officials from Australia, the Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Tuvalu.
The working group noted that the Forum’s response to such a change by Fiji would require further consideration by Forum members at the political level.
Yesterday, interim Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama told a visiting EU group that Fiji may not be able to meet the March 2009 deadline it had agreed to with Forum leaders and foreign ministers last year.
He says the delay could be caused if political leaders are not willing to participate in a public forum to discuss, among other things, changes to the electoral system.
The working group says it has been told by interim Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum that the interim government’s election timetable is yet to be finalized.
Sayed-Khaiyum has told the group this will depend on the progress of the electoral reform process over the next few months.
The working group has reiterated its support for inclusive and meaningful political dialogue over the reforms, emphasising the importance of such dialogue allowing for truly independent discussion without preconditions or preconceived outcomes.
