Independent candidates and political party candidates have until 12pm on October 15, 2018 to submit their nominations to the Fijian Elections Office (FEO) in order to contest the 2018 General Election.

“The Electoral Act contains very strict requirements regarding the submission of nomination forms before the deadline and therefore no nomination forms will be accepted by the FEO after the nomination period has ended,” said the Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem.

Nomination forms should be delivered to the Fijian Elections Office at 59-63 High Street, Toorak, Suva by 12 noon on October 15, 2018.

Nomination forms should be accompanied by a deposit of $1000 for each party candidate and $1000 for each independent candidate.

Independent candidates will also have to present a list of 1000 supporters along with their nomination forms.

Nominations will not be accepted unless accompanied by this deposit.

If a candidate wishes to withdraw his or her nomination form, he or she can do so by providing a written notice to the Supervisor of Elections no later than 12pm on the day following the close of nominations, October 16, 2018.

Forms can be downloaded from www.feo.org.fj/registering-a-political-party/candidate-nomination-forms/ or collected from the FEO headquarters in Toorak, Suva.
