The Fijian Elections Office [FEO] held a three-day workshop with its senior management to finalize its operational plans for the 50-day period that will commence once the Writ of Election is issued.
Supervisor of Elections, Mr Mohammed Saneem said the workshop was a follow-up to the one conducted in February this year to ensure that all critical electoral processes and activities in the lead up to the 2022 General Election were reflected in FEO’s preparatory plans.
“There are over 600 hundred processes that the FEO carries out in the Writ period to ensure the delivery of a free, fair and credible election and this is something that we must meticulously prepare for,” Mr Saneem said.
“We also had Technical Advisors from the Australian and New Zealand Electoral Commissions present on all three (3) days who gave their input on the plans and timelines presented by the managers and project holders.”
At the end of the workshop the FEO has managed to finalize the Media, Observer and Political Party Itineraries in addition to its own comprehensive work plan for the 50 day period.
The first possible date for the issue of Writ is 26 May 2022.
