Fiji's Electronic Voter Registration (EVR) clerks have been warned to give equal treatment to eligible Fijians intending to register for the 2014 elections despite their ethnicity, background or any disabilities.
EVR western coordinator Parayame Cakacaka made this comments yesterday in Lautoka when he briefed registration clerks.
Cakacaka said those who do not adhere to the warning will be taken out of the teams.
“We will have people moving around the booths who will be monitoring the conduct of the clerks and our efforts will be supported by the offices of the District Officer and the Provincial Administrators,” said Cakacaka.
Cakacaka told the clerks that their actions will be guided by a Code of Conduct that emphasises the need for discipline and to abide by the law.
The clerks were also told to ensure that people with physical disabilities were given the attention they required to be properly registered.
This was the second batch of clerks to receive the preparatory exercise in the Western Division and they are from areas between Sigatoka and Rakiraki and were selected on merit.
The 32 clerks underwent an orientation program to bring them up to par with the new system and among them were two experts from the company Code Inc to observe whether the training was in the right direction.
