Police To Protect Voters: Saneem

The Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem, has reassured voters that the Police will be out in numbers today to ensure their safety.

“Your vote is valuable and you get an opportunity to vote after a lapse of eight years, there’s a lot of enthusiasm and voters must take advantage of this opportunity and come out to vote,” Mr Saneem said.

“Be assured that the Fiji Police Force will be out there in numbers to provide security.”

He clarified that the military would not be involved in providing security for the transportation of ballot papers.

He was responding to queries by some overseas media that some military officers were seen training in full gear in Nasinu yesterday, a day before polling.

“The Fijian Elections Office has organised with the Fiji Police Force and they will  provide security and ensure the safety of all voters and elections office staff.”

Mr Saneem also confirmed that the containers of pre- poll ballot papers were now under heavy security at the Results Centre awaiting counting after closure of polling at 6pm today.

He added the counting process would also be allowed to be observed by the media.
