POLITICAL parties and aspiring independent candidates have been briefed by the Electoral Commission on how seats will be allocated in parliament following the September 17 General Election.

The meeting on Tuesday at the Elections Office in Suva focused on the allocation of seats once the commission receives the final national results tally from the Elections Supervisor once the counting from all the polling venues have been completed.

"The political parties and the aspiring independent candidates actively participated in a moot exercise of allocation of seats," the Elections Office confirmed.

According to the Elections Office, the commission is responsible for working out how many seats are to be allocated to each party.
