Pre-polling confusions

TREKKING across the Sigatoka River with her son on her shoulders, catching sight of women such as Merewai Dugu was not uncommon in upper Navosa as people made their way to vote at Waiyala Seventh Day Adventist School.

A first-time voter at 34, she joins a youth population that is expected to dominate the voter percentage this election.

However, she had one complaint about the election process. "Some of us are confused with choosing who to vote for," she said.

"The booklet has the name of the candidates and their numbers but not what parties they are from. Some of us want to vote for people depending on which party they belong to."

The mother-of-three has two school-aged children and would like to see school facilities in the region upgraded.
