Elections Officials for the 2018 General Election who are yet to sign their contracts with the Fijian Elections Office have until 28th March, 2018 to do so.

Director Corporate Services, Mr Sanjeshwar Ram, said that the Fijian Elections Office is currently in the process of having the contracts signed by all the successful applicants through the various centers Fiji wide.

This process began on the 6th of March and will continue until the 28th of March.

“A total of 520 Elections Officials have signed their contract since March 6, 2018 with 244 signing in the Central Division, 101 in the Eastern Division, 88 in the Northern Division and 87 in the Western Division,” he said.

Mr Ram said the target is to have over 8,000 contracts signed by end of next week.

Successful applicants are being notified via SMS of their assigned venue of contract signing.

Mr Ram said the contract signing venues will close on 28th March, 2018.

“Our venues to sign contracts have been advertised in both the daily newspapers and we urge Elections Officials to come forward to their assigned venues to sign their contracts by the deadline.

This is the final opportunity we are giving to all the successful applicants,” he said.
