WHEN 76-year-old Mataiasi Nairavu cast his vote at Nalauwaki Village on Waya Levu in the Yasawas yesterday, he did so with high hopes that longstanding grievances will be answered by the government that will be formed after the November 14 election.

He said he was fortunate to be one of the many thousands of Fijians taking to the polls to help elect those who would lead over the next four years.

Mr Nairavu said his main concern was the welfare of the elderly.

He believes this would be his last election, given his age, and hoped his vote would contribute to the efforts being made to safeguard the welfare, rights of the iTaukei people and their resources.
