Obstacles to a credible election: NFP
By NFP PRESIDENT RAMAN SINGH
Denial of Electronic Copy
Last Saturday (Fiji Sun 1/3) Electoral Commission Chairman Chen Bunn Young stated that legislation in place disallows political parties from obtaining an electronic copy of the National Voters Register.
He is also reported as saying that the advice from the Solicitor-General’s office is the basis of the Commission’s decision. The Party therefore questions the independence and neutrality of the Commission.
The Electoral Commission is an independent body solely responsible for the of free, fair and credible elections.
