The forum will continue to hear reactions on the proposed recommendations made by the Office of the Electoral Commission on the proposed amendments to the Public Order Act.
Last week’s session (on Wednesday May 16) heard follow-up reactions on the 12 proposed recommendations made the week before by the Office of the Electoral Commission on the proposed amendments to the Public Order Act.

At last week’s session the forum also heard a submission of the Seychelles Freedom Party (SFP) on the Elections Act presented by party leader Christopher Gill.
