Saneem in a press conference this afternoon, stressed that all business owners who will be operating tomorrow, which is a public holiday, should be mindful of their staff.
“We are urging every single employer in this country to consider this for the country’s sake. Please allow your employees the whole of the morning until midday to go and vote and then come and work thereafter.”
“Employees should be allowed enough time to cast their votes.”
“Businesses should already have a plan regarding this.”
The Fijian Elections Office has confirmed that 693,915 registered voters will participate in tomorrow’s National Election process.
