The Privileges Committee will table its report this morning in Fiji Parliament.
 
Speaker of Parliament Ratu Epeli Nailatikau Thursday allowed the committee’s request for more time to continue with its deliberations over the privileged matter.
 
The matter is the breach of privilege by both the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and Opposition MP Pio Tikoduadua.

On Monday, Ratu Epeli had informed parliament that after considering all the relevant materials, under the Standing Order there had been a breach of privilege by Bainimarama and Tikoduadua on 09 August.
 
The matter relates to the alleged personal attack by Tikoduadua against the Prime Minister and also the altercation between the two.
 
The report was due Thursday, however, Ratu Epeli says the committee requested an extension of a day to finalise their deliberations.
 
Debate on the report is expected to take place today.
