That�s the word from the Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed
Saneem as the FEO started a three-day workshop called ‘Building Resources in
Democracy, Governance and Elections’ (BRIDGE) for political parties in Suva
yesterday.

Mr Saneem said the training delivers on the need for
political party agent training for the 2018 general elections, as highlighted
by the Multinational Observer Group report.

“The BRIDGE workshop has been adopted by the FEO because it
allows a very thorough discussion of issues,” Mr Saneem said.

“It is the choice of the political parties to determine the
level of training and the nature of scrutiny they wish to implement,” he said.

The workshop has been organised in line with FEO�s Strategic
Plan (2015 � 2019) Goal 8, which is to enhance the knowledge and skills of the
FEO’s stakeholders through training and capacity building.
