The Fijian Elections Office has strongly condemned the attempts made by the Fiji Labour Party Leader, Mahendra Chaudhry and Unity Fiji Leader, Savenaca Narube to try and derail the FEO political party meeting by lobbying for a boycott of this meeting.

Supervisor Mohammed Saneem says 6 of the 7 political parties attended this meeting with at least 2 representatives while Fiji Labour Party did not attend.

Saneem says the meetings between the FEO and political parties provides the platform for free flow of information and it is inappropriate for a political party to promote non-attendance.

He says prior to the date of the meeting, political parties were invited to submit agenda items for discussion in this meeting and the FEO took this opportunity to provide an update on election preparation activities.

Saneem says political parties were also allowed the opportunity to observe the demonstration of a Polling Venue set-up which enabled them to have a firsthand experience of a Polling Station set-up for the 2022 General Election.

At this meeting, the Supervisor of Elections also presented the FEO’s Know Your Election awareness presentation to demonstrate the contents of the awareness material that the FEO conducts while out in the field.

This is the first face-to-face political party meeting and was co-chaired by Saneem and the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mukesh Nand.
