Fiji's Electoral Commission has urged political parties, the media and the public to conduct themselves ethically over the elections.

Fiji Broadcasting reports the Commission's chairperson Chen Bunn Young has appealed to people to refrain from violence against people or property.

He also stressed that racial incitement during campaigning is against Fiji's law.

He also urged the media to be as fair and balanced as possible in their reporting.

Last week the Minister of Elections Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum urged the Commission to step in after the stoning of taxis carrying stickers advertising his party, FijiFirst.
