Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama also told the people of Vanuavatu that he would officially launch his political party in May.

He said the election this year would be different from other general elections because it would be held in just one day.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama said each Fijian would only need one and a half minutes to vote, adding this had been tested by elections officials.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama also said 26 days before the election, the President would announce the ceasing of new parties and voter registrations and the elections roll would be made ready.

He also said all politicians would have their pictures and a corresponding number on the ballot papers to make voting easier,

Vanuavatu Village headman Jokini Ratuyagone asked the Prime Minister to explain how the election would be held as they were still in the dark.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama explained there would be one ballot paper, 50 seats and one constituency.

He also said there would be people voting one day before and some others one day after the election.
