AG speaks out on amended Political Parties Decree

Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says, the People’s Democratic Party leader Felix Anthony has failed not only to understand the new amendment of the Political Parties Decree but has also failed in his attempt to discredit the new law.

This follows the PDP’s statement at a media conference yesterday, where Anthony said, that the changes would not have an implication on their party.

“The new amendment that the Attorney General has now imposed targeting probably the People’s Democratic Party and the NFP. Let me say the current decree also does not require us to make any declarations because the decree says it is office bearers that have taken office after June 30th, 2014 now we have taken office on the 3rd of May 2014. So the current decree that has been amended only applies to those who have taken office after June 30th 2014.

”However section 24 sub-section 1B of the amended Political Parties Decree states, political party officials appointed on or before June 30th, will also need to make their declaration within 30 days.

“There were two subsections to it. The first one basically said that if anybody who becomes an official after 30th of June which is when this decree amendment comes into effect anybody that registers as an official after 30th of June needs to declare his assets and liabilities. And anyone who became an official before 30th of June also has to declare their assets and liabilities. So obviously it also covers officers from PDP it covers officials in NFP and various other officials from any other political party that may have changed before or after the 30th of June.

It is most unfortunate that here you have an aspiring Prime Minister and an aspiring Leader of Opposition who completely fails to read the decree and yet makes this bold statements in the media and the people of Fiji need to think about it.”The changes made to the decree means, officials for the National Federation Party and the PDP will need to make their declaration before the end of this month. The amendments in the Political Parties Decree came into effect from June 30th.

  1. Yes RS. He is more than a dickhead. Aiyaz Saiyad Khaiyum is really a son of the devil (SOD)

    But why are the people of Fiji allowing this sod (son of the devil) to do what he has been doing for more than seven long years? Why are the other party leaders not united in demanding an end to all this sod’s nonsense? Why is this sod allowed to run for parliament and control the elections? Why is he allowed to treat Fiji as his own family corporation? Why is he allowed to lie about his and their salaries, assets, etc? Why is he allowed to close the public accounts book from the rest of the nation? Why ? Why? Why ? Why ? And more whys?

    Please, would a real LEADER stand up and lead a national protest, and DEMAND that this sod step down, open the books, reveal the truth about his salaries, assets, etc Let us demand that these fundamentals are satisfied or step aside and have a caretaker government take us to a proper elections.

    Please my fellow countrymen. Let us wake up and stand up for our rights, once and for all. This coming election is a ruse. Let’s not let them treat us like slaves and prisoners. Let’s stand up and fight them with the truth on our own terms. Vinaka
