Know your boundaries

POLITICAL parties and independent candidates have been urged to familiarise themselves with the boundaries of lawful campaigning as set out in the Electoral Decree.

Electoral Commission chair Chen Bunn Young said people of Fiji had to refrain from any violence against people or property.

"The Commission stresses that racial incitement during campaigning by political parties and independent candidates is against the law," said Mr Young.

"The relevant stakeholders must be vigilant in ensuring balanced reporting by the print media, radio and TV stations. The Electoral Commission urges the media to exercise the highest standard of journalism and therefore be as fair and balanced as possible in their reporting."

He said ethical conduct by all citizens, political parties and the media would contribute to the free and fair election that all voters and candidates desired.
