SOLOMON Islands Electoral Commission Officer Taeasi Sanga has encouraged the 50 Revising Officers (ROs) of the 50 constituencies to recognise the values and principles underpinning good electoral practice.
Mrs Sanga said this at the opening event of the four-day training of Revising Officers in preparation for the Omission and Objection phase.
She said these are values such as integrity, impartiality, fairness, accuracy and respect for the law.
“I’m sure as part of your training and your own beliefs these values will be discussed and focused on as part of good electoral practice,” she said.
Sanga further encouraged the ROs to set the tone for their staff as leaders and role models.
“It is important that you are acting responsibly and setting that tone for all your staff so they can follow,” she said
Sanga uttered the public inquiry teams are small and must work closely together with you for successful outcomes.
