FBC News reported the proceedings of standing committees will be televised starting later this year.

The Secretary-General to Parliament, Viniana Namosimalua, said the broadcasts will ensure people can see and hear for themselves submissions on proposed legislation.

She said committees could sit in camera - privately - if allowed by the Speaker.

Fiji started live broadcasts of parliament when it was re-established in 2014.
