Saneem's priority

Nasik Swami
Tuesday, April 01, 2014

THE newly-appointed Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said his priority was to set up the Fijian Elections Office to deliver the 2014 General Election.

In a press briefing at the Fijian Elections Office in Suva yesterday, Mr Saneem said the nearing date for the elections was not a pressing issue.

"A lot of processes have been set up and are in place, the only thing now for us with the decree and support of the Electoral Commission is to move forward and ensure that the elections are held in a free and fair manner," he said.

Mr Saneem said preparations for the General Election started a long time ago.

"We have a good five or six months to elections but we have not only started preparing for elections from today (31/3), as you are aware back in last year, consultants have been engaged by the Fijian Elections Office since October — working at the Elections Office since October for the elections."
