THE President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, has urged university students who graduated last week to carefully consider the options available to them at the polls.

Ratu Epeli made the request to graduating students of the University of Fiji in Saweni, Lautoka, last Friday as the country works towards democracy and sustainable socio-economic development for all Fijians.

He told the university students that the general election under Fiji's new Constitution was scheduled for September 17.

"The Constitution now enables citizens from age 18 and upwards to decide on a government that will bring peace, equality and prosperity for all," he said.

Ratu Epeli told the students who graduated that they were eligible to vote in the general elections.
