The Fijian Elections Office has received a report on a breach of the elections campaign blackout.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said a member of the public informed them that political billboards and posters were still visible yesterday.

“We have and we are actually referring it to the investigating authorities and we will see the outcome of that; I cannot give you the specifics because the outcome itself was very general and we have passed it across to the investigating authorities,” Mr Saneem said.

“Should they find something then the necessary course of the law will take place.”

However, he said reports needed to be specific.

Mr Saneem also clarified that only billboards showing political party candidates for political reasons were bound by the Electoral Decree 48-hour blackout provision. Mr Saneem said people should be able to differentiate whether the billboards were put up for state purposes or political reasons.

The Fijian Elections Office has received positive feedback from the Multi-National Observer Group.
