MOG expects report from observers from tomorrow
November 14, 2018 3:59 am
Multi-National Observer co-chair Jane Prentice says the debriefing of their observers will commence tomorrow.
Prentice says from there they will be able to put together their considered view of the conduct of Election Day.
She says while she cannot provide observations on behalf of the whole MOG at this time as the teams are about to enter counting across the country, but through-out the day she was impressed by the commitment of the voters she met who turn-up to vote.
Prentice says she also notes the FEO’s advice that voter turnout is not as high as they had hoped due to the weather and this is unfortunate.
The co-chair says she is also aware that voting has been suspended in 23 venues due to rain and flood conditions.
The MOG believes the safety of voters is paramount and Prentice says she understands that this would have been a difficult decision for the Fijian electoral authorities to make.
Prentice says MOG will continue to perform its role to observe the count and tabulation of results and are looking forward to hearing the reports from all its observers.
