AG Has Positive Meeting with Visiting Election Experts

The joint Commonwealth/New Zealand and European election needs assessment team that has been visiting Fiji had a meeting yesterday (July 11th) with the Attorney General and Minister Responsible for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

The team consists of three experts – Carl Dundas of the Commonwealth, Melissa Thorpe from New Zealand and Etienne Claeye from the European Commission – who have been carrying out a Gap Analysis/Needs Assessment, to identify the capacity needs of the Elections Office.

Their final report will help countries and development agencies identify how best to contribute to the elections process.

During the meeting, the team gave the Attorney-General an update on their progress. In turn, the Attorney-General answered queries on a range of issues relating to the preparations for next year’s poll.

The team expects to have their final report prepared within two weeks.
