The Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) has seen from reported cases an increase in the political violence and vandalism particularly targeted towards the FijiFirst Party.

The incidents so far during the 2022 campaign period are more than the incidents reported in the 2014 and 2018 General Elections.

The Commission is working with the Fiji Police Force to ensure a safe environment in which any Independent Candidate, Political Party or Political Candidate can campaign safely and in a lawful manner.
