Numbers drawn

THE National Candidates List was drawn at the Fijian Elections Office yesterday with the Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem using the names in the list that was issued on August 19.

The day started 40 minutes late but ended well before the predicted time. The event was witnessd by the nation as Fiji One and FBC TV carried live telecast of the draw.

Mr Saneem said the process was fair and free and well in accordance to the law.

He said the Electoral Commission's failure to deliver a decision on the objections and review by 4pm on Friday meant he was going to use the list of August 19.

He said the next step would be to advertise the names and numbers of candidates in the newspapers and also send their material for publication.

He said the draw done yesterday meant everything else was on track and the Fijian Elections Office had hoped that they would get the numbers and lists ready for postal ballot.

According to Mr Saneem, the Fijian Elections Office was in line to have the register of voters ready by today.

He added that he would give the notice of pre-poll or postal ballot tomorrow as stated in the Electoral Decree.
