DRAWING from his vast background in the global political arena, Deputy Supervisor of Elections Michael Clancy is excited to be part of Fiji's progress towards the September election.

Mr Clancy said he felt honoured to assist Fiji as it worked towards the general election.

"I'm very experienced in elections in Australia and also in PNG and in other places in the Pacific," he said.

"But my role here is to work as the deputy with the Supervisor of Elections to ensure that the election is well organised and takes place in a timely manner and that everybody has an opportunity to vote."

Mr Clancy said although he had only been in the country for two days, he could see that much was being done and everything seemed well-planned.

"The important thing is that we are part of a team — the Supervisor of Elections has lots of experience in Fiji and I have lots of electoral experience so together I think the blend will make for a very good team and I'm very much looking forward to the work coming up."
