THE e-ticketing system will continue to increase poverty in Fiji, claims Unity Fiji party leader Savenaca Narube while addressing residents of Newtown, Nasinu on Thursday.
Mr Narube said the system does not in any way help those living in informal settlements.
“We are already living in poverty and we continue to struggle and fork out money to top up these e-ticketing cards, we’re using money we already don’t have,” Mr Narube said.
He said the system was only suitable to those who had a substantial income and were able to consistently top up their cards.
