Waidina Secondary School student Mere Sauvana was ecstatic last week. She voted for the first time at her pre-polling station at Wainawaqa Community Hall, Naitasiri.

“It was pretty exciting and frightening at the same time because it was my first time today to actually ink the person I want to win,” she said.

Mere knows the importance of voting because she wants Fiji to prosper.

“It is our right and we should exercise it by casting our vote,” she said.

“I have cast my vote with the hope to see more development take place especially for the youths and to also have more scholarship opportunities for the youth to pursue tertiary education.”

Mere was impressed with the voting process which she described as ‘easy and simple.’

For 18-year-old Lice Lusiana, she wanted to be early to cast her vote on Friday

““It is important to know who will become the leaders of our community,” she said.

“My mind was made up before I cast my vote.”

She said whatever government came into power should continue the development and continue to provide more social welfare assistance for poor family.

Ulamila Vacivaci, 79. said she could recall how many times she had voted. However, she felt that it was important for people to vote wisely.

“Choose your party and vote for the right person because we want good leaders in the country.”
