There was no law in place that made it compulsory for people to register to vote in the 2014 general elections, said Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum yesterday. But nevertheless, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said they were appealing to the public to register to vote for the 2014 elections.
“However, we want to urge all Fijians over the age of 18 years old to register to vote.”
Mr. Sayed-Khaiyum said the Constituency Boundaries Commission would be finalized following the constitutional consultation process and the finalizing of the draft constitution.
“The establishment of the Constituency Boundaries Commission will happen in due course. “We have a recommendation from the National Council for Building a Better Fiji to use the existing division boundaries for proportional representation on multi member constituencies, said Mr. Sayed-Khaiyum.
The Elections Office is expected to begin awareness on the Electronic Voting Registration (EVR) from next week through the media.
