The Fi­jian Elec­tions Of­fice (FEO) ap­pre­ci­ates the Fiji Na­tional Univer­sity’s (FNU) recog­ni­tion for con­duct­ing a suc­cess­ful elec­tion for the FNU Stu­dents As­so­ci­a­tion (FNUSA) held last month. The to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion was pre­sented to FEO’s Re­turn­ing Of­fi­cer, Me­sake Dawai, dur­ing the FNUSA in­au­gu­ra­tion at the Novo­tel Con­ven­tion Cen­tre in Lami last Satur­day. The FNU Act­ing Vice Chan­cel­lor, Eci Na­balarua, said the univer­sity car­ried out this elec­tion in part­ner­ship with FEO to con­duct a trans­par­ent poll to elect the in­au­gu­ral FNU stu­dent body.

“The Fiji Na­tional Univer­sity ac­knowl­edges the con­tri­bu­tion of the Fi­jian Elec­tions Of­fice in fa­cil­i­tat­ing the cam­pus elec­tion and is grate­ful for a smooth and trans­par­ent elec­tion process,” said Ms Na­balarua. The FNUSA elec­tion marked the for­mal­i­sa­tion of months of prepara­tory work by the stu­dent steer­ing com­mit­tee and lay­ing the foun­da­tion for the for­ma­tion of the first ever stu­dent union within the univer­sity.

Su­per­vi­sor of Elec­tions Mo­hammed Sa­neem com­mended Mr Dawai for his ef­fi­ciency in han­dling the FNUSA Elec­tion. Mr Sa­neem would also like to con­vey his ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the FNU and the FNUSA for invit­ing FEO to con­duct elec­tions for the var­i­ous po­si­tions. “The FEO is a strong ad­vo­cate in the elec­toral devel­op­ment of young Fi­jians with youths be­ing one of our most im­por­tant stake­hold­ers,” Mr Sa­neem said. “The FNUSA Elec­tion pro­vided us with an op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote un­der­stand­ing and par­tic­i­pa­tion of the best elec­toral prac­tices amongst our young lead­ers.” Source: Fi­jian Elec­tions Of­fice
