The Fiji Police Force is reiterating that it will not allow any person or groups to disrupt the 2018 General Elections and is reassuring the public that they are well postured to counter any attempts to create instability on Election Day and during the post‑election period.
Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho says they are well aware of rumours circulating of rogue groups working towards disrupting the voting process on Election Day and the post‑election period if results are not favourable.
Qiliho says Police are warning rumour mongers to stop creating unnecessary fear among the general populace and any attempts to disrupt the election process will not be taken lightly.
The Police Commissioner says all Fijians should be rest assured that Police are working with, and have the full support of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces and are closely monitoring the security landscape, and their officers are ready to be deployed at any time to assist them if there is information of unrest that could impact the election process.
Qiliho says voters are encouraged to cast their votes tomorrow as officers will be deployed to all polling venues and stations, while their routine operations will continue as normal.
Voting for the General Elections will take place from 7.30am to 6pm tomorrow.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
