Fiji's National Federation Party, (NFP), has welcomed the end of suspension for its Opposition Sodelpa colleagues.
On Monday, the Registrar of Political Parties lifted the main Opposition party's suspension after he was satisfied they had met all requirements following his ruling to suspend the party on 25 May for breaching the Constitution.
Over the past several weeks, in the absence of Sodelpa, the NFP's three members had been holding the fort on the Opposition benches in Parliament.
NFP leader Biman Prasad said the return of his 21 colleagues was “timely”.
“We are happy that the suspension has been lifted and that the full complement of the Opposition will be back in Parliament and in time for the debate on next year's budget.
Prasad said the Budget would be announced on 17 July and debate was expected to begin soon after.
