Electronic Voter Registration team leaders must pass certain modes of ethics and integrity says the Elections Minister Aiyaz Sayed- Khaiyum.
Sayed-Khaiyum officially launched the training of team leaders who have been selected to become trainers for registration clerks.
He reminded trainers that government does not want to repeat any of those mistakes that took place in the 2006 elections.
We do not want people sitting around the grog bowl after the elections saying well did you know that when they went on registering people they do not do it properly or did you know that somebody went and voted twice .We do not want any of this issues in the 2014 elections because it undermines the credibility of whichever government is elected.
He also advised the trainers on the need for voters to be treated alike.
When you pass on your skills that you have learned today those people who will be going out to remote areas ,islands they must treat all Fijians alike .They are all voters.
The registration process starts on July 3.
