The Fijian Prime Minister has kick-started the voter registration process.

In a ceremony marking the launch of the electronic voter registration machine, Commodore Frank Bainimarama completed the new and simplified process.

Attorney General and Minister for Electoral Reforms Mr Sayed-Khaiyum says registration will be opened to the public on July 3.

He says 1000 registration clerks will have the task of registering 600,000 people in eight weeks.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum says adopting the system will add integrity and credibility to the elected Government in the 2014 elections.
