Fiji deputy Supervisor of Elections appointed


The Fijian Elections Office has appointed Craig Rickards as Deputy Supervisor for the 2022 General Election.

While announcing the appointment, Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said Rickards brings a wealth of election experience having worked with the Australian Electoral Commission for the last 38 years retiring in 2021.

Apart from Australia, Rickards has also worked in Fiji, Tonga, Myanmar and other countries.

“Craig was here in 2014, as Technical Advisor in the area of Logistics and an advisor to the Divisional Managers in the 2018 General Election.”

“He is very familiar with the Fijian electoral system and the processes and we look forward to his contribution to the national election this year,” he added.
