Saneem advises election officials

THERE are some individuals who continue to rut and harp about the concept of "free and fair elections" but deliberately ignore or even do not know the basic tenet of a free and fair election, says Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem.

He highlighted this while officiating at the one-day training for presiding and assistant presiding officers for this year's general election at the Fiji National Council for Disabled Persons facility in Suva on Thursday.

He said every election official must ensure that they did not get influenced by external factors in conducting their tasks. He urged election officials to be polite, tolerant and always produce the best customer service personalities to voters.

"Actually, you may find several individuals who may want to create false rumours and unsubstantiated claims just to earn sympathy and maybe even some votes.

"It is my and the FEO communications team's responsibility to deal with public relations matters."
