MAJORITY of the people polled want to learn more about land issues, according to the latest Tebbutt- Times Poll.

Conducted on 1047 registered voters between August 4 and 6 the poll asked: "How important is the land ownership issue to the nation? How well would you say that you understand the current land ownership issues that are being discussed? And how interested are you to learn more about land ownership issues?

When asked to rate how important the land issues are to the Fijian nation, 74 per cent said very important and 16 per cent said quite important.

The poll stated the numbers were high across all age groups, both genders, all ethnicities and in both the Central and Western divisions.

However, when asked how well they understood the current issues, just 25 per cent said they understood the issues very well and 32 per cent said quite well.

A further 28 per cent said they understood only a little about the land issues and 14 per cent admitted they didn't really understand the issues being discussed. Younger voters rated their understanding lower than older voters.

Given the importance of the issues, it is not surprising that 83 per cent claim to be interested in knowing more about the land issues and this comprised 56 per cent who are very interested and 27 per cent who are quite interested in knowing more. Just 8 per cent said they were not interested in learning more about land issues.
