New push to register voters in Fiji

1:32 pm on 13 May 2013

The government in Fiji is making another push to register voters before the elections it has promised for next year.

Teams from the Elections Office will visit areas next month where numbers signing up in two earlier registration drives were low.

The areas targeted in June's campaign are Naitasiri, Rewa, Ba and Macuata.

The government last year introduced an electronic voter registration system.

More than half a million voters have registered to vote so far.
