Right to choose

Salaseini Moceiwai
Thursday, May 22, 2014

"YOU have a right to choose the government of your choice and the coming elections is the best place to exercise such rights."

These were the words of the Ministry of iTaukei permanent secretary Savenaca Kaunisela while opening the Bua Provincial Council meeting in Nabouwalu on Monday.

Mr Kaunisela told district representatives within the council that the country was looking forward to the historical event which was to take place in September.

Mr Kaunisela said each individual across the nation had an onus of choosing a government that would serve in their best interests.

He said the election in September would be different as it operated on a one man one vote system of voting.

Members of the council were told to be weary of those political parties that would sweet-talk villagers to meet their personal agendas.

Mr Kaunisela reminded members of the council that some of these political parties would work towards shaking the beliefs and foundations of the iTaukei race's existence.

He told district representatives that they had a duty to choose a party that would look after them and their people.

Meanwhile, Acting Divisional Planning Officer North, Uraia Rainima who attended on behalf of the Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu told members of the council that the province of Bua would be revisited next month.

Mr Rainima said a team from the Elections Office would be in the province to register those who had lost their identification cards and not registered during the first rounds of registration.
