India donate vehicles for Fiji election

By NASIK SWAMI

Update: 8:14PM IN a bid to assist Fijis election needs, the Indian government today donated eight vehicles worth more than half a million dollars to its Elections Office.

In a handover ceremony, Indias high commissioner to Fiji Vinod Kumar said Fiji was a good friend of India and the vehicles would be of great assistance in mobilising services to rural areas.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said the general election placed heavy requirements on transportation and logistics.

The Fijian Elections Office will be required to meet those needs. This offer of eight strong and reliable Mahindra vehicles by the Indian Government will certainly contribute to easing the transportation needs.
