Written By : SUN FIJI NEWSROOM. Political forum interlocutors Robin Nair and Dr Sitiveni Halapua presented results of their consultation in a written report to interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama on December 20, 2008.
They said it was unfortunate that they were unable to meet Cdre Bainimarama or the government side for detailed consultation because of the prime minister’s tight schedule before Christmas.
In the report the duo included a revised draft agenda and terms of reference for the president’s political dialogue forum, based on what they saw as a clear emerging consensus among political parties.
Mr Nair said they explained the main features of their report to Cdre Bainimarama and also requested the government to provide any comments it wished to make on the report.
“We also offered our availability during the festive season to meet with government representatives if clarifications were needed on aspects of our report or if the government wanted us to consider any further submissions from the government side,” said Mr Nair. He said the intention of the interlocutors in taking this course was to be able to provide quickly the report to all political parties after the government had had any opportunity for any further input to be considered. If the government he said were to make any further submission on their findings, they intended to have a final quick round of consultation with leaders of political parties to find a consensus on reflecting such views in the final texts.
