FIJIANS who do not register before the Writs of Election are issued in August will not be allowed to vote.

And Elections Supervisor Mohammed Saneem says his office is focused in ensuring every Fijian gets the opportunity to register to vote.

Mr Saneem also revealed plans for new registration centres in the Northern Division, and a national registration drive in June.

"We are creating every opportunity for Fijians who have not yet registered to do so over the next few months," he said.

Mr Saneem has also held briefing sessions with political parties, media organisations and government on the preparation for the September poll.

"These were the first of a series of meetings that the FEO will conduct with stakeholders over coming weeks and months to offer updates on progress toward the election."

He welcomed information and feedbacks from all stakeholders in this regard.
