THE seven-member Electoral Commission was announced yesterday by Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
Legal practitioner and former Fiji Law Society president Chen Bunn Young is the commission chairman.
The other members are academic Professor Vijay Naidu, electoral expert Father David Arms, civil society activist Alisi Daurewa, playwright Larry Thomas, businessman James Soane and accountant Jenny Seeto.
In announcing the commission, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said each member would bring along their expertise and skills set.
He said all members had been apolitical and credible members of the public.
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also said the Electoral Commission would work with the Solicitor General's office to appoint a Supervisor of Elections.
He said there had been applications for the post and although no timeline was given, the appointment would be made soon.
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also said work on the new electoral legislation was being carried out.
"As you know that we had an expert come over from Canada, courtesy of the European Union, and she put together a draft which we are working on," he said.
"We have to fine-tune that, that's our major focus for now."
He added the government wanted the legislation to be in place as soon as possible.
