McCully has doubts Fiji elections will be free, fair
Foreign Minister Murray McCully says it’s clear Fiji’s first election since the 2006 coup will be held this year .
He’s met members of the regime, along with ministers from Australia and the Pacific, for two days of talks over the weekend.
But Mr McCully’s told Newstalk ZB’s Mike Hosking the question still remains whether that election will be free and fair.
“Increasingly there are signs that the result is going to be accepted. There are signs that they’re on a track of greater freedom for political parties, there are four parties now registered. These are all positive developments but we shouldn’t expect this to just be a simple, straight line deal here.”
