As with many of the illegal regime's ambitious measures for a so-called fair society, its plan for the next election (supposedly 2014), will require anyone over 15 to be fingerprinted and photographed.
According to the illegal attorney general and Minister for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, preparations for electronic voter registration in time for the 2014 General Elections, will reduce costs and improve sustainability for both national and municipality elections.
He told Fiji media the registration uniquely identifies every individual voter based on their bio-data and unique finger print.
“Using birth certificates or passports as the primary identifier or requirement for registration, the voting system is designed to speed up the process and help eliminate cheating for voter impersonation."
Khaiyum says the new electronic voter registration system "will require conducting a nationwide registration exercise inclusive of fingerprints, and photographs of all citizens who are now 15 years old and above."
Electronic voter registration has been used in the United States, India, Brazil and most South East Asian countries like Bangladesh.
But critics say it is not fool proof and is not secure as paper ballots. It's also unreliable because of the possibility if electronic failure.
In Indonesia, where illegal Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama was earlier this year discussing with election officials there how they could support the Fiji elections, critics say the system penalises people in rural communities who are computer illiterate.
In Fiji, many people, especially those in the village, have never even used computers.
For the system to be fair, a lot of money will need to be spent on establishing the system and making sure people are trained to use it accurately and to make sure voters understand how it works.
In Fiji, where power blackouts are common, breakdowns could be a real issue.
Most countries that use electronic voting have huge populations; Fiji is just 800,000 - why does the illegal regime want this costly system?
