Register to vote

Mere Naleba
Friday, February 28, 2014

FIJIANS living in Papua New Guinea have been encouraged by the President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau to register their details in order to be part of the September elections.

Ratu Epeli, who was previously on a three-day official visit to PNG, called on Fijians who had called the island neighbour home to "register to vote if they want to be heard in the next elections".

He said officers from the Elections Office were most likely to visit PNG to conduct registration.

He said with Fijians living in Australia who had already registered their names through the registration centres that were opened at various locations in the main cities and other communities, he was certain they would be visiting PNG soon.

"Currently, the registration is being done in Australia and I am sure that they will also come to PNG so register if you want your votes to be counted," he said.

"Work has already started for the election before the end of September and I urge you all to register and vote." Ratu Epeli was informed that more than 600 Fijians were employed in PNG's capital Port Moresby.
