Acting Prime Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum
Acting Prime Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has set the record straight today on claims by certain people that Government MPs have locked themselves up to avoid being served with notices.
Sayed-Khaiyum says for the past two days he has been meeting all cabinet ministers except Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama and Minister for Defense and National Security, Inia Seruiratu who are in Poland.
He adds these were pre-planned meetings to identify ways in which certain areas of operation can 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 output and medium to long term output and do the strategic thinking. This of course is very important because if we strategize 4, 5, 10, 15-year plans than the economic benefits will be enormous, but we need to set goals and work towards achieving them.”
The petitioners’ lawyers made claims in court this morning that Government MPs refused to be served with the notice where they are seeking legal redress on the outcome of the 2018 General Election.
