IN order to recognise and maintain the trust of the Fijian people, the Fijian Elections Office will operate independently without fear or favour.

That is the message from the newly-appointed Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem.

In a press conference at the Fijian Elections Office in Suva on Monday, Mr Saneem made a commitment to the Fijian people and assured he will discharge his duties with integrity, transparency and independently.

"The Fijian Elections Office has a very clear mission statement. The mission of the Fijian Elections Office is to conduct free and fair elections," Mr Saneem said.

He said in all elections, the office would uphold the fundamental principle that every Fijian had one vote and all votes were of equal value.

"It is our duty to ensure that all Fijians over the age of 18 have the opportunity to exercise their constitutional right to vote, to be professional, just and transparent in our work."

Mr Saneem said in all matters, the Elections Office would uphold the core rights, principles of the Fijian Elections Office, which were in line with the 2013 Constitution and endorsed by the Electoral Commission.

He also assured his full support to the commission.
