THE newest permanent voter registration centre has opened in Nausori.

It is the third registration centre to open around the country, an Information Ministry statement said yesterday.

"This centre will give Fijians living in the Suva-Nausori corridor the opportunity to register to vote for the 2014 parliamentary elections at their convenience," said acting permanent secretary Responsible for Elections, Mohammed Saneem in the statement.

Mr Saneem encouraged young Fijians in particular to make use of the new facility as they turned 18 years old.

The new registration centre is located in the Government Information Centre at the ground floor of Hemron Plaza in Nausori. It is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 4.30pm.

Mr Saneem encouraged Fijians, who were already registered, to check that their personal details are correct at the registration centre.

The statement said permanent registration centres were also open in Lautoka and Labasa.
