Electoral Authorities
The Electoral Commission is established by the Representation of the People Act, and is not specified in the Constitution. As per the 2011 reforms, the Commission consists of seven members. The Chairman and two other members are appointed by the Governor-General on the advice of the Prime Minister. The Deputy Chairman and one other member are appointed on the advice of the leader of the opposition, while the remaining two members are nominated, either by the Church organizations or the Chamber of Commerce. The Commission is responsible for the general direction and supervision of the preparation of the voter’s registry and the conduct of elections. It is specifically charged with the selection, appointment and training of election officers as well as voter education.

Section 67 of the Constitution establishes the figure of Supervisor of Elections, who is nominated by both Houses of Parliament and formally appointed by the Governor-General. The law does not clearly specify the hierarchy or the division of functions between the Supervisor of Elections and the Electoral Commission.
