The FijiFirst win in the September 17 election was worth the expenses of travelling from Australia into the country to vote.

These were sentiments shared by Australia, Fiji citizen Adi Emi Draunidalo who came into the country to cast her vote for FijiFirst.

“My trip was not organised at first, but I am glad I have paid this money to come to Fiji to vote. I can say the win by the FijiFirst was worth my trip,” Mrs Draunidalo said.

She raised her concerns at what she said how the Social Democratic Liberal Party had brainwashed villagers of Niubasaga in Moturiki the Lomaiviti Group.

This, she claimed, was because they had been told false information about the Land Bank, the 2013 Constitution, the removal of chiefly titles and the Secular State.

“When I came to Fiji to vote I was opting for FijiFirst, but when I came and heard what they said  SODELPA told them, I nearly changed my mind again,” she said.

Mrs Draunidalo also raised concern that the people from her village had been greatly influenced by the party that they had resorted to some extent of checking the candidates’ numbers in the Methodist Church’s Hymn books to see what hymns represented the candidates’ numbers.
