THE Electoral Decree, which will set out regulations of the actual conduct of the 2014 General Election, is nearing completion.

Attorney-General and Minister Responsible for Elections Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said a lot of work on the decree had been completed.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum confirmed the Electoral Commission had held meetings twice with the solicitor-general's team last week on the decree.

"Also at the moment, we are working with the consultants from Australia and New Zealand regarding the decree."

He said the completion of the decree was delayed because of the threat of a cyclone developing last week.

"We are now three days past the due date but we'd rather get it right and we are very grateful to the Australia and New Zealand consultants â€" they have provided very practical solutions to some of the issues we are facing in terms of the drafting of it."

He said the decree also detailed the rules about the conduct of the poll.
