Confusion among villagers

Wednesday, September 03, 2014

AS the nation starts its pre-polling today, some villagers on Vanua Levu are still confused about the numbers of candidates and the exact location of their polling venues.

The villagers claim they do not have access to any form of media communications such as radios, television and newspapers to inform them about the candidates' numbers and polling venues.

Speaking on behalf of the confused voters of Duavata in the Northern Macuata, Jim Bandy said a lot of them were unaware of the candidates to vote for because they did not know their numbers.

"People are still confused about who to vote for because they don't know the candidates' numbers," he said.

"Also, a lot of us are unaware of where to vote from. It's a bit complicated for the rural villagers here."

In response, Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said the national candidate lists would be given to every voter at the polling stations.
