Aid for election education

Nasik Swami
Thursday, March 06, 2014

AS overseas assistance for Fiji's general election continues to pour in, the Japanese Government is the latest to grant $F450,350 in a bid to help educate the public ahead of the polls.

The grant will be provided to the FNU's division of planning and development for the project titled "Electoral Education Support for Democratisation".

The project requires FNU to create, publish and distribute electoral education manuals and leaflets, as well as hold supplementary training workshops for members of the public and candidates wishing to contest the election.

Signing the MOU with FNU yesterday, Attorney- General and Minister Responsible for Election Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the manuals were important information material, which would provide correct and detailed information on the electoral process.
