2018 general elections: FEO sets benchmark for officers

Monday, February 05, 2018

Update: 1:35PM ONLY applicants who score more than 85 per cent during the first training assessment as officers of the 2018 general elections will advance into the second and third week of training.

The Fijian Elections Office has set a benchmark on its required officers.

FEO acting director Strategic Development and Communications Edwin Nand said in the coming weeks, FEO would be contacting applicants who would be allocated training dates in weeks two and three of the program.

"While recruitment was still going on, we had begun half-day training - and from those trainings, we identified individuals who qualify for training as presiding and assistant presiding officers," Mr Nand said.

"Applicants were selected on merit after sitting a test in the half-day election officials training and appointments for presiding officers and assistant presiding officers will only be made at the end of the full day training based on their test results and assessment."

He said not all applicants who attended the half-day training would be called in for the full day training.

Presiding officers will have a one-day training program from February 8 and this is expected to be completed by March 3, 2018.
