Progress is being made in Fiji, despite the efforts of the New Zealand and Australian governments to hinder progress. The first voters are now being registered now in Fiji.

The Fijian Prime Minister has kick started the voter registration process.

In a ceremony marking the launch of the electronic voter registration machine, Frank Bainimarama completed the new and simplified process.

Attorney General and Minister for Electoral Reforms Mr Sayed-Khaiyum says registration will be opened to the public on July 3.

He says 1,000 registration clerks will have the task of registering 600,000 people in eight weeks.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum says adopting the system will add integrity and credibility to the elected Government in the 2014 elections.

      hinder progress………….. and as a result have our ‘benign backyard’ become a potential flashpoint. Thanks Helen and a curse on your house JK & McCulley for not having the balls to reverse the policy of isolation.

        NZ Govt must now break free of Oz foreign policy and take the lead to reverse the policy of isolation.
