The Fijian Elections Office will now be taking steps to directly serve the notice issued to the representative of the Fiji Labour Party, Haroon Ali Shah requiring him to correct his statement issued earlier during a campaign rally of the Fiji Labour Party.
Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem says they have had to do this because Mahendra Chaudhry from the Fiji Labour Party refused to cooperate in serving the notice to his own party representative despite having his full contacts and details and also having allowed the person to speak at the FLP rally.
Saneem says it is quite unfortunate that the FLP fails or refuses to carry out an important function under the law.
He says the FEO wishes to highlight such conduct of the FLP and its reluctance in participating in efforts to ensure that the most correct information is relayed to the members of the public during the 2022 General Election Campaign.
Saneem says they will continue to monitor campaign practices of all political parties and instances such as the current one will be dealt with in accordance with the law.
