The nomination period for candidates wishing to contest the 2022 General Election opened at 8am today.

Chairman of the Electoral Commission, Mukesh Nand says nominations will close at 12pm on the 14th of November 2022.

He adds there will be two types of nomination forms for the 2022 General Election.

Form one is for Independent Candidate nominations and Form two is for Political Party Candidate nominations.

Nand adds the nomination forms are to be accompanied with deposits of $1,000 for each Party candidate and $1,000 for each Independent candidate.

He says those who wish to register their nomination as Independent candidate must also present a list of 1000 supporters in the approved form along with their nomination form.

Nand adds any candidate who wishes to withdraw his or her nomination form, can do so by providing a written notice to the Supervisor of Elections no later than 12pm on 15th November 2022.

He says once the nominations period has ended, the Supervisor of Elections will proceed to vet all applications and decide whether an Independent Nomination or Party Nomination has met all the criteria in order to be approved as a Candidate for the 2022 General Election.

He adds the approved List of Candidates for the 2022 General Election will then be displayed at the place of nomination.

He says objections to any candidate nominations and appeals to the decision of the Supervisor of Elections must be received by the Electoral Commission at 59-63 High Street, Toorak, Suva no later than 4pm on 15th November 2022.
