WHILE various countries have started offering assistance to Fiji for the September election, India has also assured it will help the country return to democracy.

Indian High Commissioner Vinod Kumar said his country would provide indelible ink which is applied to the forefinger of a voter, several vehicles and training for election and parliamentary officials.

"The ink, we are ready

to supply as soon as it is required. We cannot send it too early as it may not be that effective," Mr Kumar said.

"It has to be closer to the date of elections."

He said the vehicles would most probably be bought here and supplied to the Elections Office.

Mr Kumar said while he was not aware of the total value of assistance, India was happy to assist.

"We are very happy that the government and people of Fiji are preparing for the general election and we have our good wishes for the people of Fiji."
