Election Day Reminder

Suva – 13.12.22

Bula Vinaka Fijians!

The 2022 General Election will be taking place tomorrow at all Polling Stations and it will start at 7.30am and will continue right up until the last voter has voted at 6.00pm.

The Electoral Commission and the Fijian Elections Office have ensured that all polling operations happen according to plan and I would like to advise you that we are ready to receive your votes.

I am informed by the Supervisor of Elections that teams have been successfully reaching polling venues and the deployment of election materials has been happening throughout the last two days. 

I am further informed that by tomorrow morning all polling operations should be normal and ready to receive votes from all Fijians.

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the findings of the Multinational Observer Group in its preliminary statement and I would like to assure every Fijian that we will continue to provide electoral services with the highest level of integrity, commitment and diligence.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to vote!

Tomorrow at 7.30am right up until the last voter has voted at 6.00pm every Fijian will have the opportunity to demonstrate their civic duty and the authority they have under the Constitution of Fiji to choose their representatives for the next four years.

On this note, on behalf of the Electoral Commission, the Supervisor of Elections and the Fijian Elections Office, I would like to invite every Fijian to come forward and vote.

It is this time that you need to exercise your authority under the Constitution and I urge every Fijian to exercise your democratic right.

With this words, the Electoral Commission wishes you the very best in your endeavors and we look forward to as many people turning out as possible tomorrow to cast their vote.

No one should be left behind!
