THE government is calling for expressions of interest from companies wishing to supply materials needed to conduct the 2014 General Elections.

In a government statement issued yesterday, Attorney-General and Minister for Elections Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said interested companies both abroad and in the country would need to meet several accepted international standards.

These include being registered suppliers with the United Nations General Marketplace, guaranteeing to meet supply deadlines and providing warranties for the goods provided.

"We invite all interested companies to register as soon as possible and to contribute to this landmark event in Fiji's history — the introduction of the first genuine parliamentary democracy based on the principle of one person, one vote, one value," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

The companies responsible will be expected to supply items like ballot boxes, polling kits, ink, voting booths and voting screens.
