THE Fijian Elections office will be providing presiding officers Manual and Polling Day Workers manuals for the upcoming 2018 general elections. Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said the manuals contained relevant information on election officials’ roles.

“These manuals are a vital resource for persons who will be working on election day to deliver the 2018 General Election,” Mr Saneem said.

“They contain the necessary instructions on what election officials are expected to do in their specific roles within the polling venues.”

He said the manuals were a guiding tool for the election officials to follow during the election period.

“The manuals have been designed as a comprehensive guide on conducting polling, reconciliation of ballot papers and counting of votes at every polling venue,” he said.
