Fiji’s Elections Office says it is organising the country’s next elections scheduled for 2014 with an electronic voter registration database involving the photos and fingerprints of voters.

Newly-appointed acting Supervisor of Elections Soro Toutou said the Elections Office had completed the planning phase of Electronic Voter Registration (EVR) for both national and local government elections or the establishment of voter rolls with photographs.

Toutou said the EVR Working Group was currently working on formulating a suitable EVR model for Fiji.
 
“Currently, Fiji is not planning on undertaking electronic voting but rather it is undertaking electronic voter registration, that is, the creation of a database that will capture voter photographs and fingerprints,” he said.

Toutou, previously deputy Supervisor of Elections, said the Elections Office was currently undergoing a review and planning phase in anticipation of electoral reforms.

He said the reforms would address three main operational issues before the 2014 elections.
 
“One, the compilation of an accurate and reliable voter roll that bring confidence to the voters; two, the planning and administering of the new electoral system, (for) which the Peoples Charter for Change, Peace and Progress is recommending the Proportional Representative List system; and finally the establishment of a new Code of Conduct and Ethics for political candidates.”

Toutou said the Elections Office wanted to achieve it major objectives by 2013 with 2014 dedicated to voter education and awareness because of the anticipated new voting system.

Fiji’s Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama wants a complete break from race-based electoral systems of the past and has defied international pressure for early elections by maintaining electoral reforms need to be carried out before elections.
