Fiji Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry has called on the people to go and register and keep their voter registration card safely.
He told a party rally in Caubati, Nasinu, last night people needed to change their address if they had moved from their previous location.
“The current Government has made voting very complicated, they have done it intentionally with only one day for election,” he claimed.
“Before parties could transport the voters to any polling station but now we can’t and if you can’t make it than you won’t be able to vote.”
The Government has said the electoral rules were designed to prevent fraud and make the September 17 election credible.
Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem said parties that transported voters to polling stations should not carry any banners.
Mr Chaudhry said “in these eight years, what has happened in the country? How the life has been and should we give this Government another chance or is it time for a change?
“Because wherever we go, people only speak about poverty, high cost of living, low income and unemployment rates are high.”
FLP candidate nominee Anandra Prasad said education was not free. Some schools only charged $30 per student.
But he said the cost of school uniforms, shoes, books and other necessities was more than the $30.
He called on the people to decide what they wanted for their children, for their future.
“We don’t want to see people in poverty, we don’t want to see people suffering for basic food items, we want all children to go to school, have decent jobs and better lifestyles,” Mr Prasad said.
“Think carefully and vote carefully.”
