Fiji will not have electronic voting in the 2014 general elections.

This has been confirmed by the Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum who also said that processes are currently being analyzed to see if elections can be completed in a day.

Sayed-Khaiyum said the logistical issues are also being considered and how the counting of votes will take place.

The new electoral system is expected to be revealed in the draft constitution. 

However, the final decision on the system and other matters in the constitution will be known after the Constituent Assembly sits and the President accepts the new constitution.
