Commission awaits final results to announce seat allocations

Update: 12:57PM THE Fijian Electoral Commission is looking to announce the allocation of seats today once the Fijian Elections Office gives the final official results.

Commission chair Chen Bunn Young said it would take the Commission a little over an hour to do the allocation of seats after they have the final result of the count.

The Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem is also optimistic that final result would be out by today.

According to the Electoral Commission, parties that have more than five per cent of total valid vote casted would make this threshold.

FijiFirst, SODELPA and the National Federation Party seem to have done that.

The final result will determine how many seats each of the party will get.

On which candidates go through to parliament, the Commission said if a party gets five seats, the top five candidates based on number of valid votes received, would go through.
