Fiji's Attorney General and Minister for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, has announced that the Government of Fiji was considering declaring a one-off non-working paid public holiday in Fiji, on the date of next year's elections.
On the occasion of the previous planned elections in Fiji (2004-01-22), Fiji's supervisor of elections, Semesa Karavaki, supported by Prime Minister, Laisenia Qarase, had proposed that a one-off national public holiday be declared during the 2006 general election. however, those elections were shelved due to a coup, and Fiji's military ruler, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, has repeatedly announced plans to call parliamentary elections since then (2007-02-21).
