55 seats for Fiji 2022 election

Fiji’s Electoral Commission has approved that the composition of Parliament for the 2022 General Election will be 55 seats, an increase of four seats from the current 51-member Parliament.

In a statement, EC Chairperson Suresh Chandra said that the Electoral Commission is required under the Constitution to determine the number of seats in a general election at least one year before the General Election can be held.

The commission made the decision during a virtual meeting today.

The decision under section 54 will now be formally conveyed to the Speaker and the Secretary General of Parliament.
