Public transport

ASIDE from drivers of public transport — taxidrivers and bus drivers, for instance — travelling crew members of Fiji Airways are also being encouraged to apply for pre-polling.

This was confirmed yesterday by Electoral Commission chairman Chen Bunn Young, who yesterday told members of the media that it was important the public transport systems worked efficiently on September 17.

"We would like to inform the public about this because on some talkback shows, the topic of public transport was an issue of concern and rightly so," Mr Young said.

"We have had several discussions now and as of late today (yesterday), we met with the stakeholders — the Land Transport Authority and the bus operators, and basically a good portion of Fiji will be using public transport."

Mr Young said having reviewed the need for public transport on election day, the commission felt comfortable saying that on September 17, there would be sufficient public transport.
