Electoral Commission receives vehicle from India

June 7, 2018 6:40 pm

The new vehicle donated by the Indian government to the Electoral Commission will boost the General Election preparations.

Chair Suresh Chandra says an election is the largest logistics exercise that any country will conduct in peace time.

He says such a massive operation must always be supported by the presence of logistics equipment such as vehicles for transport.

“Considering the effort that is required to conduct an election in a day as well as the requirements for the logistics of the Electoral Commission in travelling to and from other engagements, such an important gesture by the Indian Government will go a long way in facilitating the requirements of elections.”

The Indian Government intends to further furnish the Electoral Commission with four more vehicles.

The Indian High Commission earlier donated indelible ink to the Fijian Elections Office for use in the General Election.
