Fiji election date by April
6:13 pm GMT+12, 08/02/2018, Fiji

The date for the Fiji 2018 polls could be announced as early as 01 April.
 
The Fijian Electoral Commission says it expects the Fijian Elections Office to be ready as early as 01 April to await the announcement of the confirmed election date.
 
Commission chairperson Suresh Chandra said as the country prepared for the polls, Fijians should check their voting details.
 
“I want to also mention that as we approach the date on which the election is announced, we have noted that the election plans are on par and that there are no surprises along the way, the Electoral Commissioner expects the FEO to be ready,” Chandra said.
 
The FEO launched the SMS polling venue locator platform yesterday as it stepped up its preparations.
 
According to the FEO, the SMS platform will ensure that voters had pertinent information readily available to them.
 
“Polling venue details published as early as February in an election year will allow the general public ample time to be able to firstly know where they are going to vote,”  Chandra said.
 
Voters can send their EVR numbers to 1500 on their mobile phones to get details of their respective polling venues....
