Submissions made to restart elections process

Thursday, 04/09/2014

Suva lawyer Anand Singh has today made submission in the Suva High Court to start the elections process again.

Singh is representing Steven Singh who has been disqualified from contesting the elections due to a conviction.

During a hearing on the preliminary objections today, Singh informed Judge Justice Kamal Kumar that while he accepts that pre polling has started and postal voting has also commenced, Steven Singh’s name should appear as a candidate.

He said that a person who was not qualified to be a candidate had his name on the candidates list while Singh who was qualified is not on the list.

Meanwhile, Solicitor General Sharvada Sharma said that it is way too late for Steven Singh’s name to be included in the candidates list.

Sharma informed Justice Kumar that steps have already been taken under the Electoral Decree.

He said that postal ballots have taken place and while pre polling took place at 68 polling stations yesterday.

He also said that these steps cannot be reversed.

Sharma also said that in his submission, Anand Singh suggested that number 383 to be given to his client.

He also said that if the number 383 is given to Steven Singh, it will breach the Electoral Decree.

He stressed that the processes have taken place and Fijians in remote centers are now voting until 13th of September.

Judge Justice Kumar is expected to deliver his ruling on notice.
