Hope for funding

SEVANAIA Tawake hopes that the newly-elected government will focus more on development.

Mr Tawake, the general manager for Tonga Forest Products Limited who now lives in Tonga, said he was looking forward to the elections on September 17.

A former civil servant at the Department of Fisheries and Forests as a research officer based in Nasinu, Mr Tawake said he had already registered to vote.

"From the new government, I expect more development, especially for the rural community. I understand the current government is doing that which is good for Fiji," Mr Tawake said.

"From my past experience as a civil servant, I hope too that we get more funding from international governments like how it was before."

He said he was still not sure which party he would vote for.

"I am still not sure because first of all, I am not truly aware of how voting will be conducted, whether we vote for the parties or individuals.

"I am also still not sure of who to vote for because I am not aware of what each party represents and their backgrounds. Once I have seen the list of candidates then I could make up my mind."
