At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum has main­tained a com­mand­ing lead in the deputy Prime Min­ster con­test, the lat­est Sun News Poll re­veals.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum polled 82 per cent. He has been con­sis­tently hit­ting the high fig­ures, re­flect­ing the work he has been putting in since the 2014 Gen­eral Elec­tion.

Un­der his di­rec­tion as Min­is­ter for Econ­omy, the coun­try has recorded a re­mark­able achieve­ment in main­tain­ing nine con­sec­u­tive years of eco­nomic growth, even af­ter the dev­as­ta­tion by Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston.

Other sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments in­clude the con­tin­u­ing re­forms in the civil ser­vice.

In the tele­vised Par­lia­ment de­bates, Mr SayedKhaiyum has im­pressed view­ers with his pow­er­ful per­for­mance.

He has been a loyal deputy to pop­u­lar Prime Min­is­ter Voreqe Bain­i­marama. Peo­ple know that they work well to­gether.

Re­cently, he has sup­ported Mr Bain­i­marama in de­nounc­ing di­vi­sive pol­i­tics based on race and re­li­gion by some Op­po­si­tion politi­cians. He has worked hard to pro­mote racial and re­li­gious tol­er­ance. Peo­ple have no­ticed it and re­sponded pos­i­tively in the Sun News Poll.

Pio Tiko­d­uadua, pres­i­dent of the Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion Party, ranks sec­ond to him at 11 per cent while SODELPA’s Aseri Radro­dro comes third at seven per cent.
