Indonesian delegation visits

A VISITING Indonesian delegation this week met with members of the Electoral Commission and Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem.

During the visit, the delegation was briefed on Fiji's progress towards the September 17 general election by members of the Electoral Commission and Mr Saneem.

Electoral Commissioner and acting Electoral Commission chair Larry Thomas said the meeting proved fruitful, with both parties openly discussing how best Fiji could work towards meeting the election deadline.

This was of particular interest given that Indonesia is a country which has carried out a one day election.

"We thank the Indonesian delegation for meeting with us to discuss how the Fijian Elections Office could learn from the Indonesians on how it staged its one day elections," Mr Thomas said.

"Indonesia's population is much more compared to Fiji but yet they have been able to stage a one day election."

Indonesian delegation head Surahman Hidayat said work carried out by the Elections Office was commendable, particularly work being carried out on the ground towards getting Fiji ready for the election day.
