FEO to hold FTU National Election on Saturday
April 12, 2019 7:21 am
The Fijian Elections Office will be conducting a National Election for the Fiji Teachers Union this Saturday.
This is to elect two Vice Presidents and three Executive Committee Members.
Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem says they have set up 23 polling venues to ensure that the 5, 156 FTU members around the country have an opportunity to vote.
Saneem says there are four candidates contesting the two Vice Presidents positions while six candidates are vying for the three Executives Committee Members post.
He says they are using nine schools in the Western Division as polling venues, eight in the Northern Division and six in the Central Division.
Saneem adds unlike the General Election where voters are assigned their polling venue, FTU members can cast their vote at any polling venue provided their name appears in the Voter list and have a valid ID.
All polling venues will open at 9am on Saturday except for Levuka Primary School which opens at 10am.
The results of the FTU National Election are expected next Tuesday
