'It's about confidence'

MORE observers will arrive into the country about three days before the general election on September 17, says the Multinational Observer Group.

Co-ordinator Andrew Goledzinowski said the observer group was made up of representatives from 15 countries, each of whom would be putting their name on the final report on the September election.

He said none of the observers had any doubts on what was required of them.

"It's about providing confidence. It's about not just the international community's confidence in what is happening in Fiji, it's about providing some level of confidence to the Fijian voting public, that in fact this election will be as good as it can be in terms of its integrity and effectiveness," said Mr Goledzinowski.

"From this week we will start to deploy outside of Suva. We will not be able to meet every Fijian voter and attend to every village and polling station but we want to go as broad as we can and we want to cover majority of environments in Fiji. The maritime, the interior even where there are fewer people."

"Their views and expressions reflected in our reports."

Today the observers will be at the voter training centres.
