Fiji's interim Attorney General says PDF may still go ahead

6:48 am on 24 April 2009

Fiji's interim Attorney General says the Presidential Dialogue Forum or PDF to discuss the way forward for Fiji may still go ahead.

Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum says at the end of the last political dialogue -- a day before the Appeal Court ruling that the interim administration was illegal - it was decided they were ready to move on to the Presidential Forum.

But My Sayed Khaiyum says some changes to the format may now be needed:

"The general mood is that we are ready, but obviously circumstances have changed as to what shape or form the next meeting will take and that is something that will be decided in due course."

Mr Sayed Khaiyum says as far as he is aware the offers from the United Nations and the Commonwealth to facilitate such forums are still on the table
