The Fijian Elections Office is placing their trust on presiding officers and their assistants to ensure polling at all stations are conducted smoothly and without interruption.
Those who have been recruited by FEO will undergo training from Thursday to qualify for these positions.
Acting Director Strategic Development and Communications Edwin Nand says they have high expectation from the officials.
“These officials will be responsible for ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted conduct of polling at their respective venues. The FEO has invested in ensuring they are fully trained and ready to deliver come Election Day, and we are confident in their ability to manage polling venues. Apart from this, Election Officials will also be ambassadors for the Fijian Elections Office and we expect the highest level of professionalism and respect from each of them. To those who have been selected for training, I wish you the best of luck and look forward to working with you.”
Around 4500 individuals recruited by the FEO will take part in the trainings session from March 3rd.
Nand adds they hope to collectively train 625 officials this week alone.
