EU commends inclusion in MOG

THE head of the EU in Fiji, Andrew Jacobs, has commended the inclusion of the Europe-based experts in the Multi-national Observer Group for the September general election.

"I am very pleased that, subject to accreditation, three long-term European experts will take part in the Multi-national Observer Group," Mr Jacobs said in a statement issued yesterday.

"The experts have very substantial experience of elections, including in Fiji, and I am convinced that they will make a very positive contribution to the exercise."

Mr Jacobs said it was of a great importance to the EU to be able to carry out an assessment of this year's electoral process — a full return to democracy will enable the EU to re-establish comprehensive development co-operation with Fiji.

Unlike in 2006, he said the EU did not receive an invitation to field a full stand-alone European Election Observation Mission for this year's elections in Fiji, and standard terms of reference would have prevented such a full mission being embedded in a broader exercise.
