Multinational Observer Group staff met members of Fiji’s Electoral Commission (EC) on 6 October, including Commissioners Simione Ratabacaca Naiduki, Kavita Raniga, Ratu Paula Halaiwalu, Margot Marie Jenkins and Jawahar Lal, as well as Chairperson Suresh Chandra.

The Commissioners and the MOG discussed the preparations for the upcoming General Election and the EC’s role in voter registration, voter education, candidate registration and the settlement of electoral disputes.
