Fiji’s Election Office has registered around 80 per cent of domestic voters on its first phase of electronic voter registration for the 2014 election.

At the close of the first phase of sixty-one days, the government statement said a total of 488,734 Fijians registered at Voter Registration Centers (VRCs) that were open in locations across the country.

Fiji’s Attorney-General and Minister for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said this is a great achievement as Fiji moves toward parliamentary elections in 2014.

“The overwhelming turn-out of the Fijian people is a clear indication of their willingness and commitment to participate in the process of building a better Fiji for all.”

The second period of registration will be announced later in the year after the election office thoroughly assesses the first phase.

Registration of Fijians living abroad will begin next year.
