The work of the Fijian Elections Office and the Electoral Commission have been commended by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
The Prime Minister says they have delivered credible elections representing the will of the people.

He has also confirmed the government’s financial and legal support for the Electoral Commission to pursue its independent functions.
“They must have the staff, training and technical capability and capacity to conduct the kind of elections that the Fijian people deserve and trust”.
Bainimarama adds that the FEO and the Commission have set the standard of fairness, impartiality and transparency in elections.
