Woman disappointed

Felix Chaudhary
Friday, September 05, 2014

JOSEVINI Gade was watching the clock, all dressed up and ready to vote about half an hour before the Nabou Pine Station opened for pre-polling at 5pm on Wednesday.

Her husband and 21-year-old son were also planning to vote and were due to arrive from work within the one-hour voting period.

"I want to vote and I don't want to miss out waiting for them in case they are late," she said.

At 5pm sharp she walked towards the building where election officials were waiting. Ten minutes later she returned, disappointed.

"I live a stone's throw away and yet they told me that I am not on the list. The previous day there were officials going house to house telling people voting would be held today and we should all go. Now, they say I should have texted and checked.

"I don't have a phone, so they checked for me and said I have to go to neighbouring Tau Village on September 17 because they expected only 31 people," Mrs Gade said.
