Mr Sayed-Khaiyum and Sir Paul met at the his office in Suva, with discussions focussing primarily on putting the right processes in place for an electoral reform.

Fiji Live online says when Sir Paul was approached he said the issue to convene a political forum to discuss electoral reform issues was dealt with urgency.

He also said the meeting was good, and he did not want to elaborate further.

But Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the meeting went very well.

He says we always welcome Sir Paul because he has history with Fiji and a very positive one at that too.

Sir Paul Reeves was one of the architects of Fiji's 1997 Constitution,

It is understood Sir Paul will be meeting with a wide range of persons, including Fiji's largest political party, the SDL.
