THE British government is ready to assist the Fijian Government in conducting this year’s general elections.
British High Commissioner to Fiji Melanie Hopkins said the United Kingdom(UK) government had not been involved in detailed discussions on assistance for this year’s polls but they were ready if a request was made.
“We haven’t been approached by the Fijian Government to provide assistance. What we have done is to follow the process though and we look forward to fair and free elections being held in the country,” Ms Hopkins said.
She added that in the last elections in 2014, there was a multinational observer group sent to Fiji which had a UK member in it.
