SUPERVISOR of Elections Mohammed Saneem says he is encouraged by the number of Fijians overseas taking their time out to register to vote in the 2014 General Election.

Mr Saneem said Fijians residing overseas had a lot of interest in participating in the election.

"We say it is a voluntary process and it is also very encouraging to see Fijians overseas still have a lot of interest in taking part in this election and the way they are turning up is very encouraging," Mr Saneem said.

He said the Fijian diaspora were widespread worldwide.

"Considering the way the diaspora is spread and also the geographical concerns of overseas, it's not literally in Suva, it's just widely spread over countries and the way they have taken their time out to register is very encouraging."

He said the focus of the Elections Office was to give as many Fijians the opportunity to register and vote in the general election.
