Terms for observers

Dawn Gibson
Friday, August 15, 2014

SOME members of the multinational observer group (MOG) will be here for a shorter period than others.

This is part of the terms of reference (TOR) for the group which comprises representatives from 14 countries including Israel, South Africa, Brazil, Russia, Turkey, Japan, New Zealand, Korea, Iran and the UK.

"The MOG will be made up of both long-term observers, who will arrive in Fiji prior to the election date, and short-term observers, who will arrive prior to the polling and stay until polling and counting have been finalised," the TOR explains.

"The MOG will commence its tasks once it has been received an induction to the electoral laws by the Fijian Government, and has received the accreditation documents from the FEO (Fijian Elections Office), and will conclude once the MOG has submitted its report in accordance with Article 3."

The total number of observers who will come into Fiji for the election as part of this MOG is yet to be announced.
