Back together

THE Electoral Commission and the Fijian Elections Office are working together to deliver on September 17.

Commission chairman Chen Bunn Young said let there be no misconception that there was a rift between the two arising over the disagreement which had to be settled by the High Court.

"I think we would like to set aside any misconceptions. There was never a time when we were at opposite poles. We disagreed as organisations and institutions do and the court settled one of our disagreements," said Mr Young.

"Even at the time when we had filed the proceedings we were working on this poll notice together and I think the public was unaware of that. I want the people to know that we were co-operating even in the midst of this court action.

"I think everybody should know this. Both the Supervisor of Elections and our office are completely committed to deliver a fair and credible election on September 17. Along the way we had disagreements.

"This has not derailed the elections process. It will happen on September 17."

Mr Young said the court had defined the clause in the Electoral Decree and there would be no further action by them.

"I think those parties know that our ability to address those complaints are limited and after a very big discussion with a party member yesterday, they will be looking at their own avenues to pursue this further if they wanted to and we will not be part of this," said Mr Young.
