POLLING agent trainers designated by political parties to observe the election have started their training with the Fijian Elections Office.

The train the trainer program is designed to train trainers nominated by parties to inform the polling agents of their roles and responsibilities on election day.

The training focuses on the rights and obligations of polling agents and the importance of their role in the electoral process.

According to the Elections Office, polling agent trainers from four political parties and one agent representing an independent candidate have attended the training so far, and additional sessions have been organised for the remaining parties.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said polling agents played a crucial role in promoting transparent and accountable electoral processes.

"On polling day, polling agents will observe the counting of votes, how the results are transmitted, as well as all other electoral processes at the polling station," Mr Saneem said.

The program ends tomorrow.
