Candidate Numbers Start From 508

508 will be the first number a candidate is assigned after a barrel draw for the 2018 general elections.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem confirmed that the candidates’ number draw could be held as early as 10am tomorrow (Thursday).

This will, however, depend on the outcome of the objections period, which ended yesterday.

The last number a candidate will be assigned, provided that all seven objections fail, will be 744.

As announced by the Fijian Elections Office earlier, the number 666 will not be part of the barrel draw.

FijiFirst, SODELPA and National Federation Party each have 51 candidates contesting under their banner.

Fiji Labour Party has 25 while HOPE has 28 candidates.

Unity Fiji will field 29 candidates.
