The Fijian Elections Office (FEO) received some timely assistance in the form of four SUV vehicles being gifted from the Indian government.

They were handed over by the Indian High Commissioner, P. S. Karthigeyan, yesterday.

Electoral Commission chairperson Mukesh Nand said “This is an important year, not only for the nation but, also for the commission and the FEO in preparing for the 2022 General Election”

 

“The election process could be the largest logistic exercise that any country conducts, and such a massive operation is being supported by the presence of logistic equipment such as vehicles for transport.”

“Considering the effort required to conduct an election in a day, as well as the requirements for the logistics required from the FEO.”

“Such an important gesture by the Indian Government will go a long way in facilitating the election.”

 

The commission and the FEO have also been assisted with vehicles in the past two general elections

The Indian High Commissioner said Fiji and India’s relationship went back a long way where the destiny of both nations got intertwined in 1879.

“We have been through some challenging times, but we are still there for each other,” he said.

 

“Whether in key economic sectors like agriculture, capacity building or standing together with our Fijian friends in organising this challenging election.”

Mr Karthigeyan said India had always been there and reassured that India would be there for Fiji in the future.

He said the FEO had done a great job in preparing for this upcoming election like they had done in previous years.
