Attorney-General and Minister Responsible for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, said the involvement of such a Multinational Observer Group in Fiji’s September 17 general election was unprecedented and a first for Fiji.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said like the other countries/organisations that had joined the Multinational Observer Group, the European Union would also participate under the terms of reference that had been set by the Fijian Government and as agreed to by the four core leaders – Australia, India, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said: “We welcome the European Union’s participation with the Multinational Observer Group. Such a Multinational Observer Group is unprecedented and is a first for Fiji.”

He said the group does not only need to be impartial but also apolitical.

“The Multinational Observer Group needs to provide inter alia an impartial and apolitical assessment of the procedures, processes and conduct of the September 17 elections,” the Minister Responsible for Elections said.
