Fiji People's Party general secretary Charan Jeath Singh believes the interim Government is here to stay for five years.

Singh told Fijilive that after yesterday’s political Leaders Dialogue meeting in Suva he is sure that the elections will not be held sooner than 2011.

“It’s just a drag,” said Singh after the first meeting of political party leaders with the interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama and representatives of the Fiji military.

“The agenda of the meeting could have been set yesterday,” he said.

Singh said all the political parties have been given five weeks to make written submissions.

When asked whether they will back out of the Leaders Dialogue, Singh said, “No, we will definitely make our submissions”.

The participants at the Leaders Dialogue were unanimous that Fiji must return to parliamentary rule.

However, their positions varied on issues such as electoral reform and timeline for a general election.
