Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem has not resigned.
Sayed-Khaiyum made the comments when asked by fijivillage News if Saneem has resigned from his position.
fijivillage News had sent questions to Saneem in mid December and again yesterday on whether he had given in his resignation letter to the Office of the President.
There has been no response by Saneem and the Fijian Elections Office when questions were emailed on 16th December last year and yesterday. We are still awaiting his response and clarification.
Meanwhile the Fiji Labour Party is claiming on their official facebook page that Saneem has resigned after the FLP, Freedom Alliance and Unity Fiji filed complaints against him.
The FLP then says that this is still unofficial news but they are reliably informed that the Fijian Elections Office staff held a farewell party for the Supervisor on Friday.
There is no official confirmation on what the FLP has posted and Sayed-Khaiyum stressed last night that the resignation has not taken place.
