Preliminary results showed that FijiFirst  held its ground in predominantly iTaukei areas where SODELPA was expected to poll heavily after its late surge in the campaign.

Prime Minister and FijiFirst leader Voreqe Bainimarama proved his popularity by winning  the highest votes and carrying his party to take the lead early in the counting process.

The number of SODELPA candidates featured in the top rung of the iTaukei battleground areas showed that its campaign on indigenous issues had gained traction.

But Mr Bainimarama’s big lead  early in the counting showed his popularity as a leader.

If he continues to poll heavily, then FijiFirst could be heading for a  clear victory.

The results vindicated the Razor Research/Fiji Sun weekly poll which had been consistent in showing that Mr. Bainimarama was the Preferred Prime and that FijiFirst was the Preferred Party.
