The Fiji regime has extended Public Emergency Regulations until the end of the year.

The interim prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, has told Radio Fiji that some people with dirty political motives are awaiting the removal of the emergency regulations to organise a protest march against some government decisions.

He says the government of the day and the security forces will not allow that to happen and the emergency regulations will be in place till the end of the year.

Commodore Bainimarama says they will give no room for anyone or any institution to cause incitement.

The emergency provisions were imposed in April when the court of appeal ruled that his interim regime was illegal.
