THE Electoral Decree of 2014 has had a few amendments after the President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau gazetted the changes on June 27.

According to the gazette, a new subsection has been inserted into Section 36, the section which deals with National Candidates List.

The new subsection reads "The National Candidates List must not contain any party name or party symbol".

Section 43 of the Principal Decree is amended by deleting paragraph (f) in subsection (1) and substituting it with new paragraphs.

Paragraph (f) reads "sufficient copies of the National Candidates List together with instructions on how to vote which must be made available to or accessible by each voter".

Paragraph (g) reads "such written directions not inconsistent with the National Candidates List or any provision of this Decree issued by the Supervisor to every presiding officer with respect to the orderly conduct of the election".
