The Supervisor of Elections has confirmed that due to low connectivity at some of the Polling Venues in remote areas, polling officials were not able to communicate across their respective voter turnout record.
Mohammed Saneem adds that the Fijian Elections Office will be able to provide the total voter turnout records of the respective polling venues by this Saturday.
Saneem has also confirmed that there are still 584 polling station results that have yet to be entered into the tally and advises that the announcements for the candidates are going to change with the entering of these final results.
