First-time voter, Mika Salaibula, rushed to Suva from Ba yesterday to cast his vote.

The 27-year-old said even though he was young he knew how important his vote was.

“I work in Ba but was registered to vote here in Nabua, I couldn’t miss this chance so I travelled down just to come and cast my vote. This is a very important time for Fiji and I didn’t want to miss it,” Mr Salaibula said.

He said he was happy the elections had taken place and looked forward to a democratic government.

“It has been eight years. I’m really happy I voted,” Mr Salaibula said.

Although it was his first time to vote he found the voting process easy.

“I stood in a long queue before I could cast my vote but I thought the process was simple and organised,” Mr Salaibula said.
