The Fiji Bus Operators Association and the Fijian Elections Office have agreed that bus services on Election Day, 14th  November, 2018, will operate under the Public Holiday timetable and with additional trips in the morning to ensure that members of the public who have to travel to Polling Venues are able to use bus services for this purpose.

The Elections Office has extended its appreciation and thanks to the Bus Operators Association for their willingness to assist in enhancing the franchise as well as to ensure that all Fijians have access to a public means of transport that is widely used  to enable them to access their Polling Venues on Election Day.

Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem says it is essential for every Fijian to vote and the Fijian Elections Office is ensuring that it is able to engage all possible stakeholders in this  regard to ensure that voters have access as well as the ability to get to their assigned Polling Venues, mark their ballot paper and return home.

Saneem also urges all employers who will have their businesses  operating on the day to accommodate the constitutional right of Fijians and create an enabling environment where Fijians are able to attend to their Polling Venues and mark their ballot paper and return to work without any penalty or repercussions.
