Parties briefed on poll process

POLITICAL parties were briefed on the different electoral processes that they could witness during the election period by the Fijian Elections Office yesterday.

Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem said the FEO has managed to compile a 50-day itinerary for political parties to rely on in terms of the important times, dates and places where they have to be present with their agents during the upcoming elections.

“Political parties will have full access to scrutinize the processes and it is our effort to ensure that they have adequate knowledge of the times, dates and places they have to be at for them to effectively discharge their observations for the General Election,” Mr Saneem said.

He reiterated that the election processes were transparent and accessible to parties on various dates and times to facilitate the proper understanding of the election and its processes.

“We hope that they’re able to utilize the information that they receive to enhance their election preparations this year.”
