The Electoral Commission will be advertising for expressions of interest from reputable firms, agencies and organizations that can conduct the audit of the National Register of Voters in Fiji.
The expression of interest for the audit of the National Register of Voters will be open for 21 days ending on 24 November 2021 at 4pm. The Electoral Commission anticipates that organizations with experience and knowledge in this regard both locally and internationally will be keen to undertake the exercise.
Electoral Commission Chairperson Mr. Suresh Chandra says “The Multinational Observer Group from the 2018 General Election recommended that the Electoral Commission should consider an audit of the voter list. We have had that as part of our long term plan and since the election is very near it will be ideal to conduct an audit so that the voter list can be audited just as we enter the election phase.”
The voter list audit will be based on internationally accepted principles of audit of voter lists which includes lists to voter and voter to lists analysis as well as any other general recommendations.
Mr. Chandra explained that a panel of assessors made up of Electoral Commissioners will determine the institution or organization that will ultimately undertake the audit of the voter list.
