2018 General Election: Confusion in northern pre-poll venue

VILLAGERS of Nacula in Labasa Town were shocked this morning as they received visits from media agencies in the North who were asking for directions to the pre-polling venue in their village.

When this newspaper visited the village this morning, housewife Ane Donu said that they had also received other queries from the media asking for the pre-polling venue.

“I was surprised because there is no pre-polling in this village,” Ms Donu said.

This newspaper was later informed by FEO staff in Labasa that the Nacula Village mentioned in their pre-polling schedule was a village located in Saqani, Cakaudrove.

Meanwhile, journalists had also made the same mistake during the last election because the schedule did not specify the respective district.
