November 5, 2018 12:07 am
Due to unfavourable weather conditions at sea on route to Lau, the MV Cagivou that departed Narain Jetty yesterday has yet to arrive to the first island for the Pre-Poll voting.
The Fijian Elections Office has not received any confirmation from the captain who only notified them that they were not able to reach on time last night.
In a statement, the FEO says as at now, the confirmation has not been received of the ship’s arrival to any of the islands.
The FEO advises that polling on these islands will commence once the ship has arrived at the destination and necessary changes will have to be made to accommodate polling at these locations following the confirmation from the ship captain.
A total of 5 venues were scheduled to poll today from the teams that are present on the boat.
The FEO says they have spoken to the Turaga Ni Koro’s for these areas and informed them of the delay due to weather conditions.
