UNDP welcomes opportunity to contribute

The head of the United Nations Development Programme in the region, Knut Ostby, says the agency welcomes the chance to give input on Fiji’s elections next year.

The UNDP attended talks with the Fiji government last week on coordinating the international help on offer for the 12014 elections..

Ostby said the UN have seen some positive steps going towards elections, such as the registration of political parties.

Ostby added that they had recommended that it would be good to have an independent supervisor of elections.
