All Fijians must choose their leaders which is part of achieving true democracy in this country.

This statement was made by the Speaker of Parliament, Dr Jiko Luveni during the Fijian Elections Office mobile voter registration drive at the Fijian Parliament in Suva yesterday.

She said the Parliament Secretariat had turned up to get their voter cards reconfirmed.

“This is their commitment to the next General Election.

“Voting is really important because it indicates to people that the population of Fiji are committed to bring about true democracy by playing their role to choose their leaders.

“And this is why it is so important that everyone in corporate bodies and out in the communities in the urban, rural and maritime areas must vote,” Dr Luveni said.

FEO communications officer Edwin Nand said the Fijian Elections Office was pleased that the Parliament Secretariat responded to their call for corporate organisations and businesses to let their team go into their premises to conduct mobile voter registrations.

“The idea here is to be able to deliver services to people who cannot leave the office and attend one of our voter registration centres that we have around the country.

“This is very convenient in the sense people can come in, spare about ten minutes from their daily work assignment, get their voter services, check their voter details, get a new voter card and easily and quickly return to work.

“There is no backlog and no loss to productivity.

“It is an advantage to organisations which have a large complement of staff who aren’t always able to leave the office.

“We are glad that Parliament and the Secretariat decided that they would take up this opportunity.

“And we have seen a huge turnout and also members of Parliament visited the drive, as well, to get their voter details checked.

“The registration ends on July 1 and we have until then for business houses, corporate entities in any four divisions to make arrangements for mobile voter registration,” Mr Nand said.
