The FijiFirst Party continues to lead the official 2022 general elections results tally with 83,234 votes after the completion of the count at 1053 of the 2071 polling stations.

This is 41.81 percent of the votes counted.

The People’s Alliance is in second place with 71,098 votes which is 35.71 percent of the votes.

National Federation Party is in third place with 16,813 votes which is 8.44 percent of the votes counted. SODELPA has 10,856 votes which is 5.45 percent of the votes counted.

Fiji Labour Party has 5,896 votes, Unity Fiji has 5,855 votes, We Unite Fiji has 3,273 votes, All People’s Party 1,449 votes and New Generation Party has 477 votes.

Independent candidates Rajendra Sharma and Ravinesh Reddy have 92 and 46 votes respectively.

A party can form government if they win 28 seats or more.

If no one reaches the 28 seats on their own, then we expect negotiations between parties to form a coalition government.

Parties that qualify to be in parliament need to receive 5 percent of the total votes in the elections.

Based on the current count and the percentage of votes received - the projected seats for the FijiFirst is 25, People’s Alliance 22, National Federation Party 5 and SODELPA 3. These projections will change as more votes come in from polling stations. Please note this is a projection based on the votes counted so far.

The results are out for 271 of 731 polling stations in the Central Division, 155 out of 222 stations in the Eastern Division, 178 out of 391 polling stations in the Northern Division, 3 out 16 stations for postal votes and 446 out of 711 stations in the Western Division.

Results for 51 percent of the polling stations are now out.
