Fiji former AG resumes role

Updated at 2:08 pm today

The role of Attorney-General in Fiji’s new government has gone back to Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum in the first cabinet reshuffle since the election.

Nadi lawyer Faiyaz Koya who had earlier been sworn in as Attorney-General now takes on the industry and trade portfolios which had earlier been given to Mr Sayed-Khaiyum.

The portfolio switch comes as Fiji’s new parliament meets for the first time.

The Prime Minister, Frank Bainimarama, says the change had been made because of the heavy workload of Mr Sayed-Khaiyum’s other portfolio, Finance, and the need for the minister responsible for Industry and Trade and Tourism to have a more hands-on role.

He also says Mr sayed-Khaiyum has an intimate knowledge of the AG’s role and will provide the AG’s Chambers with continuity.
