The Acting Prime Minister, Attorney-General Aiyaz Saiyed-Khaiyum, with Raijeli Lesione of the Elections Office during the launch of the Elections Office website yesterday.

Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum yesterday officially launched the Elections Office website in Suva.
For the first time ever, Fijians who have registered to vote in the 2014 election can access and check their personal information and make changes through the forms provided on the new website.
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the launch of the website shows Government’s commitment to an entirely transparent election process.
“It as a valuable information resource for Fijians living at home and abroad that was also bound to gain a wider international audience.”
He said this gives people direct access to the Elections Office as people can see their own registration, and see information on requirements for registration of voters and political parties.
“We are introducing the first genuine parliamentary democracy in Fiji’s history, replacing a voting system that operated on racial lines with one person, one vote one value. That is a landmark event that will also attract global attention”, he said.
The Minister urged those with access to the Internet through a personal computer or smart mobile phone to make sure their entries are correct and report any inaccuracies to the Elections Office. Those who have yet to register can download the relevant form.
The website – www. electionsfiji.org – also contains a range of information about the election, including who is entitled to vote and the rules covering the eligibility of political parties.
The Minister said that young people turning 18 in the lead-up to the election would be able to register right up until the writs are issued. He also said the Government would soon be announcing details for the registration of Fijians living overseas.
