23 Polling Venues Closed Due To Bad Weather: Saneem
Voters brave the wet weather to vote at Rewa District School polling station.

23 venues are now closed due to heavy rain and flooding in the areas. This number is likely to increase.

This means that over 7,000 voters who were registered in the affected polling venues will cast their votes at a later date.

Supervisor of Election Mohammed Saneem said polling in these venues will commence on a date that is feasible for polling which will be announced by the Electoral Commission in consultation with the supervisor of Elections.

“Due to the weather situation the Fijian Election Office have received information from the presiding officers in grounds that there are some polling venues that are no longer accessible to voters to come and cast their vote.”

“In these circumstances, the FEO tried to wait out a bit to see if the rain would stop, but it seems like the waters are rising and it has become necessary to consider adjuring polling at these locations.
