A team from the Solomon Islands Electoral Commission is in Fiji to learn voter registration methods used here.
Officers are getting firsthand experience from the latest round of registrations for students who’ve turned eighteen.
Bosaboe says, after the 2014 elections, the Solomon Islands Electoral roll hasn’t been touched – but looking at Fiji, things are likely to change.
“We are now planning to have an update, a continuous update kind of mechanism, within the Solomon Islands and part of which is, trying to capture eighteen year olds as we are similar in that circumstances so, we’d like to take that on board as well, registering students in schools and going out into villages and have a continuous mechanism in place for Solomon Islands.”
Elections Supervisor Mohammed Saneem says, Fiji too may have some lessons to learn from the Solomon’s, in ways of discussing registration issues that both the countries face and try and come up with solutions so that this process is improved."
The three officials from Solomon Islands have been here for a week and return home on Tuesday.
