The Electoral Commission, in preparation for the 2022 General Election, and noting thatthe first possible date the Writ can be issued is 26May 2022, has today informed Political Parties through a letter that all communications with the Electoral Commission in which they seek the Commission’s action, response, comments or for any other matter must be communicated via official correspondence on email or letter addressed directly to the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission and through the official email provided. Letters to the Commission can also be dropped off at its office at 59-63 High Street Toorak, Suva.
“The Commission has done this in order to ensure that all communications going into the 2022 General Election are consistently dealt with, recorded and available in case of future reference,” explained Mr. Nand, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission.
It is also important to note that the Commission does not wish to engage indirect communication with Political Parties and Candidates through the media, social media or any other platform that may be available to a person.
The Chairperson further says: “It is imperative that all Political Parties adhere to this to ensure that communications for the 2022 General Election are direct, formal and transparent.”
