Indonesian Ambassador to Fiji, Benyamin Scott Carnadi, welcomed the arrival of Multinational Observer Group (MOG) members to Fiji when meeting with MOG Secretariat staff on 4 October.
Indonesia is one of the MOG’s three co-lead countries, along with India and Australia. Indonesia was also a co-lead country of the 2014 MOG.
“Indonesia is happy to take on the role of co-lead and I look forward to having Indonesian observers accredited to the MOG soon,” said Ambassador Carnadi.
“The MOG’s work will help ensure the election is held credibly, transparently and in a manner that properly aligns with democratic values.”
Ambassador Carnadi also noted that Indonesia would announce its Co-Chair in due course.
The MOG is led by three Co-Chairs, one from each of the three co-lead countries. The Co-Chairs are responsible for the overall management and coordination of the MOG.
