Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem has referred the Fiji Labour Party to the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption for probable breach of Section 116(3)(c) and 4(d) of the Electoral Act 2014.

Saneem says they found out that at a campaign event of the FLP, a representative of the party made several statements that may be in direct breach of the law.

He says a video recording of the political rally of the FLP held at Korovuto in Nadi on 28th July 2022 has surfaced on facebook by one of FLPโ€™s representatives, Taina Rokotabua, containing statements made by supporters at the rally which may also amount to racial vilification.

The Supervisor says given that the video is publicly posted on Rokotabuaโ€™s facebook page, it continues to present opportunities to mislead people and may incite violence.
