LAND is rated as one of the most important issues to the Fijian people in the lead-up to the September 17 general election.

The latest Tebbutt-Times Poll revealed that most members of the public are interested to know about the land ownership issue and are keen to learn more about it.

In the lead-up to next month's general election, people are being urged to be more aware of the important issues — land ownership, land use issue and land legislation — all of which concern not only to the iTaukei people but every Fijian who call Fiji home.

Different political parties have come up with their manifestos on how they re going to approach and deal with the land issue if they make it into Parliament.

The land issue remains a sensitive subject in various communities across the country.

The latest Tebutt-Times poll reveals that 83 per cent claim to be interested in knowing more about the issue which showed the interest members of the public have on the issue.

In various political party campaigns, this thorny topic continues to attract a lot of attention which is evident from the many questions on the subject. This shows the eagerness of the Fijian people to learn and know more about it.

The poll also revealed that only 8 per cent were not interested in learning more about land issues.

Given its importance, it is imperative therefore that members of the public are educated on the issue so they have a fair understanding prior to casting their votes on the people they think should form the government after September 17.
