Newstalk ZB

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.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
