Fiji Elections Office makes pre-poll amendments

The Fijian Elections Office has had to make minor amendments to its pre-polling schedules at some venues across the country.

FBC News reports Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem said this was done to meet the need of voters and in some cases, their safety.

He said FEO staff were unable to reach a pre-poll venue in Vanua Levu due to a flooded river and they will have to wait until the water subsides to cross the bridge.

He added in another case, schedules were moved to accommodate students, who are sitting their external examinations.

The SOE added any changes made to pre-poll schedules are updated to the general public as well as political party registered officers.

Meanwhile, 14,957 Fijians will vote today at 116 pre-poll venues.

Tomorrow is the final day of pre-poll voting, ahead of Election Day on Wednesday next week.
