Doubts cleared

Salaseini Moceiwai

QUESTIONS, doubts and confusion over the voting system have all been put to rest following the awareness program held in Savusavu yesterday.

At least, that's how it has been described by district reps and village headmen of Cakaudrove who attended the one-day session at Yaroi Village.

Isimeli Koli, Natewa District rep said he now fully understood the voting system and its importance.

He said that it was not as difficult as earlier presumed by some groups and people in society.

"It is much easier to understand now and I am glad we were brought in to be part of the program as it is very useful," he said.

"When I return to the village, I will have a meeting with other village headmen and elders and teach them how it works.

"They will then go out and teach their villagers and clear the air over details and information people are not sure about."

Wailevu district rep Samu Qolikoro considered the village heads as blessed because they never attended similar programs in the past.

"As far as I know, since becoming district rep, we never had this kind of awareness program even in the last election," he said.

"So this is good for us and I am happy about the information I learnt from the session.

"I will have meetings with other village heads to teach them how the voting system works and the importance of voting."

Mr Qolikoro said villagers in his district had raised questions about how the voting system worked.
