Election awareness

Saturday, August 30, 2014

THE Methodist Church in Fiji's conference ended with members being informed about the General Election at the Centenary Church in Suva yesterday.

Church leaders and church representatives from around the country were informed about pre-polling and the changes in the electoral process compared with the past election process.

Elections Office civic educator Selina Vatuvoka said they had attended the last day of the conference to create awareness on the election process.

"The main concern raised is that the conference ends today (Friday) and pre-polling starts next week and with the boat arrangements most members will still be here during the pre-polling dates," she said.

"We at the Elections Office need to look into this, so we need to go back and address it because we need everyone to take part in the election."

Methodist Church communications and overseas mission secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said the church was really concerned about many of the delegates who were part of the conference not being able to go cast their votes during the pre-polling dates.
