The Commissioner of Police – Sitiveni Qiliho, is warning rumor mongers to stop creating unnecessary fear among the general populace, and any attempts to disrupt the Election Process will not be taken lightly.
The Fiji Police Force is reiterating that it will not allow any person or groups – to disrupt the 2018 General Elections, and is reassuring the public that they are “well postured” to counter any attempts, to create instability on Election day, and during the post-election period.
Qiliho says they are well aware of rumors circulating – of rogue groups working towards disrupting the voting process on Election Day and the post-election period, if results are not favorable.
The Police Commissioner adds – Fijians should be rest assured that they are working with, and have the full support of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.
He says they are closely monitoring the security landscape, and their officers are ready to be deployed at any time, to assist if there is information of unrest that could impact the Election process.
Voters are encouraged to cast their votes tomorrow – as officers will be deployed to all polling venues and stations, while police routine operations will continue as normal.
