It was important to stick by our schedule: MOG

The Multi-National Observer Group has expressed disappointment at the statements made against them by some political parties.
SODELPA, National Federation Party, Fiji Labour Party and Unity Fiji had yesterday said that the MOG should not have released its interim statement last Friday as voting in some areas was left.
In response co-chair Jane Prentice says they went ahead with issuing the interim statement as majority of the voting was done.
“Ninety-eight percent of people have voted and we had told the people of Fiji that we would give an interim statement at the scheduled time 3pm yesterday (Friday) and we thought it was important to stick by our schedule – so that the people be confident in what we are doing.”
Prentice says they have issued an interim statement and they will stand by it.
She also says they have spoken to a wide range of people including all political parties and made thorough observations during the Electoral process which will be reflected in their final statement.
