The Fijian Elections Office is on standby mode and ready to head to the polls.
Supervisor of Elections – Mohammed Saneem says they’re working on fine-tuning their processes and ensuring their officials are upskilled on the necessary electoral processes.
Saneem is advising Fijians to ensure they too, are ready to head to the polls.
“For voters to make sure that they continue to keep their voter i.d cards safe and to update their details on the voter id’s as soon as possible so that they are not left out should the writ be issued at any time.”
Meanwhile, the FEO earlier this week removed the freeze in place for the Western Division which means that those residing in the area can now update their voter details.
The freeze was in place to ensure that there weren’t any changes of details only to access the Cyclone Assistance Recovery Efforts otherwise known as the CARE program and commit a fraudulent act.
Around 20 point four million dollars has been allocated for the FEO in the new financial year, a decrease of one point seven million dollars.
