THE terms of references issued by the government for international elections observers for the general election was applauded by the Civil Society Organization Domestic Elections Observation Group.

In a statement the nine local NGOs who make up the domestic observer group said the terms of reference were in line with international standards and provided an opportunity to carry out a meaningful and comprehensive election observation.

"This is an important step and shows the demonstrated commitment of the government of Fiji to prepare the environment for credible elections.

"We would like to applaud the government for this move," CSO-DEOG said in the statement.

However, the CSO-DEOG highlighted that in order to achieve a completely favourable environment for credible elections it was also pivotal that the Fiji Government allowed for independent technical domestic elections observation.

"For a completely favourable environment for a credible election it is necessary to allow for an independent technical domestic election observation."
