An election with a difference

VOTERS at Lodoni Primary School in Tailevu all felt the significance of the task they were faced with as they gathered to vote on Wednesday.

And some were lost for words as they struggled to explain what voting meant to them.

Retired nursing sister Meredani Vakasoko, 69, said previous elections were different as they were not treated with the same gravitas as this one.

But she said this election was all the more important and this was seen in the large numbers present at the voting station.

Speaking in the iTaukei language she said people understood this election was for the future of the country.

Dakuinuku villager Usaia Niqilai said he wanted a government that would bring prosperity to the country.

He explained that the system of voting was relatively simple.
