SUVA, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- The Fijian Elections Office has begun preparing for the Pacific island nation's 2018 general election, the government-owned Fiji Broadcasting Corporation reported Friday.
After getting the approval from the Electoral Commission, the elections office, which is in the initial stages of planning for the general election, is expected to publish plans and processes that will be undertaken before polling.
"In 2017, the Fijian Elections Office will focus primarily on procurement of election materials, preparation of training material manuals and guidelines, finalization of polling materials, finalization of pre-poll and polling venues for the whole country," said Mohammed Saneem, supervisor of elections.
The elections office will undertake the recruitment of approximately 17,000 polling staff this year, Saneem said.
