The Fiji Roads Authority says they informed the Fijian Elections Office about 11 billboards that have been placed on Road Reserves.

Four billboards are in the North while 7 are in the Central Division.

CEO Jonathan Moore says they have not received any instructions yet from the Fijian Elections Office to remove these billboards.

Moore says they cannot just go and remove any billboards because they have to follow the electoral process.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem had yesterday highlighted he will be advising the Fiji Roads Authority to bring down some party billboards that are at public places such as road reserves without consent.

Saneem says they have been informed by FRA about some billboards that have been placed on public areas but they do not have the authorization of the Supervisor of Elections.

Saneem says they wrote to the political parties yesterday and asked them to give them information as to where the billboards have been placed.

He says some parties have replied to them with the ownership of the property as to be private and they have accepted their response while some parties have not given any information.

The Supervisor says their findings are that these places are road reserves and the political parties do not have the authorization of billboards in these areas.
