THE future of many young people who will be voting for the first time will be created in the upcoming general election.

In an interview at the Suva bus stand last week, school students within the voting age were randomly picked to express their opinion about the move to a better Fiji.

Suliana Vakatawa Korocawiri said she dreamt of a Fiji free of corruption and full of harmony.

"To achieve this it all depends on the leader who has to love and open his heart to the community and others," Korocawiri said.

Rachael Tabau also shared similar sentiments saying the outcome of the upcoming election should create a bright future for the country.

"I am hoping that the leader I will choose will lead Fiji in a better way, to a country with no crimes," Tabau said.

"I want a bright future especially for the upcoming generation, something that will help young people in the future especially in the education system and our daily lives."

Alanieta Lewaicei said Fiji needed to place emphasis on the tourism industry and the business sector, especially the promotion of the Fijian Made products, as it generated revenue.
