Billboards are a breach of the electoral laws: Bulitavu

Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Update: 4:40PM THE Fiji First billboards need to be pulled down says Shadow Minister for Defence and National Security Mosese Bulitavu.

Mr Bulitavu in a statement by the Office of the Opposition issued today said the Electoral Commission must wake up and issue orders for the removal of the billboard signs and institute action against the FijiFirst Party by referring the matter to the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC).

"It should not have escaped the attention and focus of these offices and institutions that the FijiFirst is putting up large billboard displays to influence the voters in the upcoming elections of 2018. This is a gross breach of the electoral laws which define the campaign period," he said. 

"The attention of these bodies are drawn to page 22: Phase 2, Section 1, (2.1) of Candidates - Handbook related to election advertising. We want this matter to be determined and the FijiFirst Party to be taken to task."

The billboards claimed to be a breach of the electoral laws are currently displayed around the country.
