Acting Supervisor of Elections Ana Mataiciwa has reminded the participants to shine as a beacon of democracy and let the operational plan guide the way for the Fijian Elections Office and all Fijian voters.

She stated this while opening the FEO 3-day BRIDGE Operational Planning Module Workshop at the Southern Cross Hotel this morning.

Bridge stands for Building Resources In Democracy Governance and Election, and represents a unique initiative where five leading organisations in the democracy and governance field have jointly committed to developing, implementing and maintaining the most comprehensive curriculum workshop package available in the area of elections.

She extended her thanks to the Australian Electoral Commission for their unwavering support and commitment to fostering democratic process which is a boost to their collaborative efforts.

Mataiciwa says earlier this month they launched their 2024-2027 strategic plan which defines the measurable objectives they collectively agreed upon aligning with their respective roles in the organisation.

She says the year 2024 promises a multitude of adventures with the first Local Government Elections that will be conducted by the Fijian Elections Office as a full time national election body.

The Acting Supervisor of Elections says as we approach the end of 2023, a time when most organisations are winding down it is inspiring to see that they are gathered today not to conclude, but to embark on a workshop that holds paramount significance for the coming year.

She says particularly in preparation for the local government election.

Mataiciwa adds their presence there is a testament to their unwavering commitment to democracy showing that when the call to stand as gatekeepers arises, they will rise to the occasion.
