A large land development op­eration in Nadi has been blown away by the Election services. They operate from eight to five and six days a week.

And their large workforce find it impossible to get off the worksite and into Nadi Town to arrange their voter registration.

The office called Elections asked if they could assist and within two hours they had three people in the developer’s of­fice and started to register the workers who come off the site in batches to get themselves able to vote.

The Elections team were calm, efficient and helpful and added about 25 people to the role. Even the CEO, when he found out Elections were there went and got himself registered.

WE LEAD ON MEN-C

The Australian government has just announced that they will provide free vaccinations to eve­ryone under the age of nineteen try and to control a Meningococ­cal outbreak there.

We are just finishing our campaign and any outbreak was certainly well controlled. Nice to see them taking notice of us for a change.

THEY’RE QUEUING UP

They continue to jump on the bandwagon. The movement started from day one – when their colleague Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete was named as a provisional candidate for FijiFirst in the 2018 General Election. One thing is sure.

He will not be short on support and ideas. Medical professionals who have placed their confidence in him are queuing up ready to con­tribute ideas on how to lift the standard of the medical service.

One is a review of the opera­tional procedures or protocols in all medical facilities.

Once they are done the next step is to ensure there is compli­ance. That means documenta­tion will be essential.

It ensures all the boxes are ticked to safeguard the patients and protect the health provider.

ACTING ALLOWANCE ROW

The future of a high-ranking University of Fiji official hangs in the balance. The official may soon be sent on leave pending investigations.

This follows a meeting at the university where questions were asked about an acting allow­ance.

BOYCOTT LOOMS?

As UniFiji grapples with a num­ber of issues, it is understood that a much publicised Sir Moti Tikaram Memorial lecture to be delivered by Chief Justice An­thony Gates tomorrow, may be boycotted by senior academics.

It’s not against Mr Gates, but it will be a form of protest against the university over grievances they have that includes the clock-in and clock-out dispute.
