Fiji's Parliament has passed the Public Order Amendment Bill, allowing political groups more freedom to hold meetings without a police permit.
Meeting and march organisers will now only need to apply for a permit if they're planned for a public park or road.
Until now, a permit had also been required for gatherings held in community halls or any other public space.
Fiji Village reported the legislation would still allow the police to stop a meeting or procession if it was in the interest of law and order.
The Public Order Act was controversially amended in 2012 under the then military-led government.
Opposition figures criticised the changes, saying people were too fearful to attend meetings.
