Candidates were impressed with the transparency of the ball draw that took place at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday.

First time candidates thanked the Fiji an Elections Office for ensuring that the process was transparent.

Unity Fiji Party candidate, Liga Gukisuva wished all candidates the best for the 2018 General Election.

“It is one of the most transparent process I have come across and I am confident about the election and want to congratulate the Fijian Elections Office for reaching this far,” Mr Gukisuva said.

“I am glad that I have received my number 524. I am confident in this year’s election and hope for the best for all the candidates.

Fiji Labour Party (FLP) candidate Dharmendra Kumar said he was also happy with the ball draw.

“The process was transparent and as a first-time candidate I am happy with the process,” Mr Kumar said.

“The elections before used to be different because you had to tick beside the name of who you were voting for and this time it is the number.”

FLP candidate Uluiqalau Vosalave said “the process is as transparent as it can get, and I am glad that I have received my number today”.

Indonesian ambassador to Fiji Benyamin Scott Carnadi said “it was a transparent process. Everyone could watch it live and that was good”.

Indonesia is again one of the MOG’s three co-lead countries, along with India and Australia.
