CIVIL servants have been reminded about the importance of voting and teaching others how to vote.

Yesterday, Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem met civil servants in Savusavu.

He told them his team decided to include civil servants in the voter awareness programs because of their positions in society.

"Civil servants are focal points and we have decided to create awareness with you people because you can impart the knowledge to those in your communities," he said.

"You can also correctly inform the voters how to vote.

"Civil servants can also share their knowledge about voting during and after working hours even while at home during talanoa sessions."

Mr Saneem said the role of civil servants was important in this area as they would help everyone learn about voting. He has labelled the awareness program a success.

Mr Saneem said the feedback from village headmen, district reps and the provincial council office had been positive.

Reps from as far as Rabi and Kioa islands attended the awareness program held in Yaroi Village yesterday.

Mr Saneem said for people to travel from their villages and as far as Rabi and Kioa meant a positive feedback from the community.
