The next general election can be held any time from July 9, 2021, to January 9, 2023, says Attorney-General and Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

“As we look into the future of our democracy, we are providing $23.1million to the Fijian Elections Office to continue preparations for the third genuine parliamentary election in Fijian history,” he said while delivering the 2021/2022 National budget in Parliament last Friday.

“Elections can be held any time from 9th July, 2021 to 9th January, 2023.

“An additional $16.3 million is provided under Head 50 in the event that elections are held within the 2021/2022 financial year or, I should say, held in the next financial year which is 2022-2023 financial year.”

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said $1.5million of that total value would go to the Fiji Police Force to maintain security during the election.
