THE Multinational Observer Group (MOG) commenced in-country election observation on Monday with the arrival of observer co-ordinator Andrew Goledzinowski, and other members of the core team from Australia.

A statement from the MOG yesterday stated Mr Goledzinowski has been deployed to Fiji to establish the MOG Secretariat and to begin the mission's work.

Mr Goledzinowski met the Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem on Monday to receive his accreditation as an observer.

He also delivered a briefing to members of the diplomatic corps in Suva.

They also witnessed the closing of the nominations for party candidates on Monday at the Elections Office (FEO).

"The FEO has accredited the MOG to assess whether the outcome of the 17 September general election broadly represents the will of the Fijian voters," Mr Goledzinowski said in the statement.

"The MOG will have freedom of movement throughout Fiji and will communicate with the Fijian Government, political parties and other social and political organisations in Fiji.

"Fiji has invited India, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Australia to co-lead the mission. The four co-lead countries will be joined by representatives from other countries invited by Fiji to observe the elections."
