The Fiji Police Commissioner met with Elections Supervisor Mohammed Saneem yesterday to discuss outstanding issues between the two institutions ahead of the September 17 elections.
Police Commissioner Bernadus Groenewald was accompanied by Police Chief Operations Officer Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Rusiate Tudravu for their meeting at the Fijian Elections Office.
Mr. Tudravu said they had a good meeting and that the two parties would be meeting more frequently.
“We just had a few clarifications with the Supervisor of Elections; some of the concerns that has been raised by the Commissioner of Police in terms of the Police’s involvement; I think it was a good discussion,” Mr Tudravu said.
“We have a few clarifications in terms of our roles especially on the storage, the printing, transportation of the ballot papers and also the result.
“Areas of concerns to the Supervisor of Elections were the counting centres and all these areas, where they will need Police patrol to be involved in,” he said.
“So these are some of the finer details that we are trying to work on; the Police plan is already in place, however, these are some of the gray areas that we would like to verify and I think we will be meeting frequently now just to patch up on some of the gray areas.”
