The Fijian Elections Office [FEO] has conducted a three (3) day workshop with its directors and senior managers to finalize its plans and operational timelines for the 50-day period once the Writ is issued.
“An election is considered the largest logistics operation in any country during peace time and the FEO, as the election management body, is working towards an organized, structured and an efficient delivery of election operations so that voters are able to access their right to vote conveniently,” Mr. Saneem said.
“We are now planning for activities and critical electoral processes that will need to be carried out after the Election Date is announced and this is something that the FEO needs to meticulously prepare for.”
At the end of the workshop, the FEO will be publishing the Political Parties Itinerary, Media Itinerary and Observers Itinerary for the 2022 General Election. These Itineraries will contain comprehensive information on the timelines for processes in which each of these stakeholders will have a vested interest.
“The FEO will gradually publish these itineraries so that the stakeholders can prepare themselves accordingly” explained Mr. Saneem.
The three-day election planning workshop concluded on the 17th of February.
