Acting Prime Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khai­yum has set the record straight on claims that Government MPs had locked them­selves up to avoid being served with writ of summons.

The summons relate to the Court of Dis­puted Returns matter regarding aspects of the 2018 General Election.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said for the past two days he had been meeting all Cabinet min­isters except the Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama and Minister for Defence and National Security, Inia Seruiratu, who are in Poland.

He added these were pre-planned meet­ings to identify ways in which certain ar­eas of operation could be improved.

“To get the synergies involved, identify what we call the low hanging fruits in terms of what we can deliver not just as a government but in terms of economic ou­tut and medium to long term output and do the strategic thinking. This of course is very important because if we strategise 4, 5, 10, 15-year plans then the economic ben­efits will be enormous, but we need to set goals and work towards achieving them,” he said.

SODELPA and National Federation Party are challenging the conduct, count and tal­lying of results of the election.
