SUPERVISOR of Election Mohammed Saneem has urged all his staff to operate with the highest standards of conduct in order to maintain the faith and trust of the Fijian people.

And Mr Saneem has also called on civic educators to look at the mission statements of the Election Office.

"These are not just words on a page. It's a solemn pledge that we make to the Fijian people to conduct a free and fair election; to act independently without fear or favour and to uphold the core values of honesty, integrity and transparency," he said.

"There will be times when you are faced by those who might try to discredit you, belittle the work you are doing or ask to bend the rules.

"I know that you are more than capable of living up to my expectations and ensuring minimal inconvenience to voters.

"You are now part of a special team tasked with delivering a successful election that Fijians will never forget. The integrity of the electoral process is important."
