The few logistical problems that arose on the first day of the electronic voter registration (EVR) yesterday will be taken as learning steps to ensure these problems do not arise in the coming days.
That was the word by the Permanent Secretary for Elections, Mere Vuniwaqa.
At Syria Park registration booth in Nausori, a shortage of registration forms was noted.
However, within minutes, Mrs Vuniwaqa and her team arrived with more copies of the forms.
The clerks at the registration booth had not anticipated a huge turnout during the first few hours of registration. Mrs Vuniwaqa and her team had been making rounds of the five registration centres in Suva and Nausori to check on the progress of registration.
“We had a few logistical issues but we are picking up on those issues and are addressing it as we go,” she said.
Meanwhile, people the Fiji Sun spoke to suggested that more registration booths could be put up when the universities have their open day to attract more crowd.
Mili Rokowaqa, 23, a FNU agriculture student at Koronivia suggested the registration team set up booths at the university open day to ensure that young people are registered.
