Poll training for officers

TRAINING for presiding officers, assistant presiding officers and venue co-ordinators for the 2014 General Election is in full swing, Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem says.

Mr Saneem said training began in the Central Division last week, and continued this week in the Central, Northern and Western divisions.

So far, about 4000 applicants have been scheduled for training.

He said the trainees for these three top positions were selected based on their scores in the recruitment testing, as well as their chosen preferences for position and location.

"There is no set pass mark for these positions," Mr Saneem said.

"We are selecting applicants initially with the highest scores, but are also basing our decisions on polling venue location and position preferences. This means that in some areas applicants with lower scores may be selected for training than in other areas."

He said all applicants were requested to ensure their mobile telephones were switched on at this time, as the initial notification regarding training would be made by text message.

Mr Saneem said once the training for those three positions were complete, the Elections Office would begin training for polling day workers.

He stressed no job offers were being made at this time and all applicants selected for training were required to complete further testing during training.
