Commonwealth Secretary-General, Kamalesh Sharma has sent a congratulatory message to Fijians for participating in large numbers in a democratic process to express their views clearly on their choice of leaders and representatives.

“The authorities of Fiji are also to be commended for their organisation and administration of the election. We acknowledge with appreciation the many Commonwealth countries and individuals who provided support and participated in the preparation for these 2014 national elections.

“The announcement of the official results is awaited, but we are encouraged by the preliminary statement issued by the Multi-national Observer Group.”

Mr Sharma said the election was a critical step in Fiji’s return to full democratic and civilian constitutional rule.

“We urge all concerned to continue working together in consolidating and strengthening the gains achieved by this landmark election,” he said.
