THE European Union has offered an observer team to be part of Fiji's general elections in September 2014.
This announcement was made by EU ambassador to Fiji Andrew Jacobs who said they were happy with how Fiji had moved towards democracy.
"The electoral process is well underway and we are happy with how things have progressed," said Mr Jacobs.
"We are all looking forward to elections next year."
Mr Jacobs said the EU was encouraged by Fiji's electoral process.
"EU is very pleased with what has transpired in Fiji recently in the lead up to the polls and we are pleased to send an observer team from the EU if invited by the Fijian Government," he said.
Mr Jacobs said the offer was already on the table awaiting the Fijian government's response.
