THE electronic voter registration (EVR) exercise will carry on as normal in some designated centres around the country after the end of the EVR process in the third week of August.
Speaking to The Fiji Times, Attorney- General and Minister responsible for Elections Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said there would be registration centres open after the 60-day period to cater for those who would have yet to register.
However, he said there would not be many centres as there are now.
"At the moment, we are in churches, public places, shopping centres, schools and everywhere," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.
"All together, 1100 registration centres are open. It's a massive exercise.
"So after the 60-day period, there will be a few centres open so this is why we are encouraging everybody to register now because it's convenient, plus it also helps us to go through those processes.
"It's a national effort, it's an apolitical exercise, unfortunately there are one or two people who try to politicise the issue...it's an apolitical issue to ensure that the political process is actually transparent," he said.
Meanwhile, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum has urged all Fijians to register particularly the young people.
He said they had also looked into the matter of registering those who were sickly.
"We encourage everyone to register because it's a national exercise and a national effort and we should be all proud of it," he said.
