VOTER education prior to this year's general election is an important aspect of Fiji's voting process.

This was one of Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum's messages at a press conference held in Suva on Tuesday.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said with the elections approaching, the Electoral Commission would be working towards addressing key areas surrounding voter education in the country.

"The Electoral Commission will be conducting that and indeed many of the countries that we've been meeting up with have indicated their willingness to provide funding for voter education," he said.
