The Fijian Elections Office [FEO] has received Petitions filed by Satish Kumar, Jone Dakuvula and a joint Petition by Sitiveni Rabuka and Professor Biman Prasad.
In all Petitions the Supervisor of Elections has been named as a Respondent.
The FEO will therefore be responding to the above Petitions and for this purpose has engaged the services of the Office of the Solicitor General to represent the Fijian Elections Office.
The FEO will work closely with the Office of the Solicitor General to prepare all necessary court documents to facilitate a decision by the court. In the coming days, the FEO anticipates all its court documents will be filed as per the schedule and timetable set by the court.
Until the court decision, the Fiji Police Force will continue to guard all election materials at the FEO Warehouse in Bulei Road, Laucala Beach to ensure that in the interest of justice, all election materials are secure and safely under guard by Fiji Police.
