Fiji has been appointed as an Advisory Group Member representing the Melanesia region to the Pacific Islands, Australia, and New Zealand Electoral Administrator’s (PIANZEA) Network following a nomination by the Melanesian grouping at the PIANZEA meeting in Nadi.

The Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem, accepted the nomination.

“Since the re-admittance into the network, the Fijian Elections Office has benefitted from several training and capacity building initiatives organized by PIANZEA, including this week’s meeting,” Mr Saneem said.

“Fiji’s appointment as a PIANZEA Advisory Group Member will give us even greater access to networking opportunities and electoral assistance.”

The PIANZEA member countries manage and direct PIANZEA activities through a PIANZEA Advisory Group and the Advisory Group members are rotated through nomination by member countries.

PIANZEA, a semi-formal association of Pacific Election Management Bodies (EMBs), is a platform for networking, sharing capacity-building opportunities and provides mutual electoral assistances to member from the region funded by Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australia and currently hosts the PIANZEA Secretariat.
