First-time voter, Sanaila Madrai has urged young Fijians to express their rights by voting during the 2014 General Elections.

Mr Madrai said apathy and ambivalence about the electoral process should not be tolerated,

“There are youths out there who are least bothered to vote which should not be the case, voting is important because it is our future that we are choosing.

“Some may be scared but they shouldn’t be; there is great assistance from the Fijian Elections Office,” he said.

The twenty-two year old described the voting process as easy to understand.

“At first I was scared as I entered the community hall then after receiving assistance from the pre- polling officers I managed to gain confidence and complete my vote,’’ he said.

“I have been preparing myself for these elections since it was being introduced, so I have been keeping myself informed through the assistance of the media.”

He urged Fijians to make their votes count this year.

“To those who will be voting please make sure you are voting for someone that will assist us in our daily needs and make it count,” he said.

Mr Madrai cast his vote at the Nawaqadamu Community Hall in Nadi, yesterday.
