Fiji’s Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama is urging all youths that will turn 18 in 2014 to register for the general elections.

Speaking at the cadet passout parade of  St Thomas College in Lautoka yesterday, Bainimarama said all eligible students to register with the electronic voter registration process to ensure that they have an opportunity to vote in 2014.

He said for those who are 16 or 17, the registration centres will remain open after August so they will be able to register as soon as they turn 18.

He also addressed more than 600 military cadet students on the importance and value of education and discipline.

"Cadet training produces discipline, honesty, and responsibility."

"Leadership is founded on these very principles and without honesty and transparency, the Government’s flood recovery efforts would have been riddled with mismanagement and corruption."

The electronic voter registration ends on August 31.
