November 13, 2018 4:01 am
Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem is encouraging registered voters to come out and exercise their constitutional right.
Saneem is also reminding voters that it is important to follow all the rules while at polling stations to avoid being penalized.
He adds registered voters must do a final check and come prepared before heading down to their respective polling venues to avoid any disappointment tomorrow.
“Due to the weather, we are currently advising voters to come prepared for rain, bring a raincoat to avoid getting wet. Come line up in the cue, vote and have the rest of the day off.”
Saneem is also reminding Fijians that the rules that were in place during the forty-eight hour black out period still applies until the close of poll at 6pm.
“Therefore, when you come to vote you must make sure that you are not wearing any party campaign materials like t-shirts, shirts containing any symbols from political party. You must refrain from doing so because the Police may ask you to go home change and come back.”
The FEO is reminding voters to take their voter identification card, an umbrella and a water bottle to their respective polling station.
Five hundred and fifty thousand Fijians have registered to vote.
Polling venues will open at 7.30 tomorrow morning.
