The Fijian Elections Office has received the petitions.
The petitions are filed by Unity Fiji Party’s Satish Kumar and Jone Dakuvula and a joint petition from SODELPA Leader Sitiveni Rabuka and NFP Leader Biman Prasad.
In all petitions the Supervisor of Elections is named as a respondent.
The FEO says they will respond to the Petitions and has engaged the services of the Office of the Solicitor General to represent the Fijian Elections Office.
The FEO says it will work closely with the Office of the Solicitor General to prepare all necessary court documents.
In the coming days, the FEO anticipates all its legal documents will be filed as per the schedule and timetable set by the court.
It also says that until the court decision, the Fiji Police Force will continue to guard all election materials at the FEO Warehouse in Bulei Road, Laucala Beach, to ensure that in the interest of justice, all election materials are secure and safely under guard.
