The Electoral Commission [EC] conducted a one-day Electoral Planning Workshop to organize itself and review all the activities for the 50 Day Writ-to-Writ period.
In attendance were the Supervisor of Elections, the Chairperson of the EC and the six (6) members of the Commission.
“It is very important for us to assess at this stage the level of planning that is involved in terms of the 50-day period and particularly to understand the tasks that need to be delivered by the EC itself under the law,” Chairperson of the EC, Mr Mukesh Nand said.
The Electoral Commissioners also took some time to assess the barrel used for the Candidate Ball Draw following the presentation by the Fijian Elections Office [FEO] Team.
“It is very interesting the way that we run Elections in Fiji and I have reviewed the presentation from the FEO in regards to key processes building up during the Writ-to-Writ period,” he said.
“I am confident that FEO will effectively carry out all these processes so that Fiji will have a free, fair and credible election in 2022.”
The workshop will conclude later this evening.
