There is no need for security officers around the voter registration centres in Fiji, says Attorney General and Minister for Elections Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
His comment comes after a 58-year-old farmer from Vunaniu, Serua was charged with criminal intimidation after he confronted an Electronic Voter Registration clerk.
Sayed-Khaiyum told FijiLive that there were only one or two incidents where people try to disrupt voter registration works.
“And indeed all of the centres practically operate very smoothly,” said Sayed-Khaiyum.
“People need to be just aware of other people’s rights of the fact if they come to the centres and register themselves quickly, promptly with all the information and then there’s no disruption,” he said.
“There’s been no guarding of EVR centres and everything is happening smoothly and this also goes to show a huge amount of trust and confidence in the system in the willingness of the people to express them selves through the ballot paper,” he said.
Voter registration at more than 100 centres around the country is in its third week since it began on July 3.
Since Tuesday, a total of 130,507 Fijians have registered.
