Numbers Easy: Voter

Voting is not only about a tick, cross or circle, it’s about Fiji’s future,” says Republic of Fiji Military Force Warrant Office Class 2 (WO2) Sekonaia Tikoidavuilevu.

The 51 year old cast his ballot at the pre-polling at Queen Elizabeth Barrack yesterday.

He described his experience of the whole process as “easy and simple than the past years.”

“I have voted and I found the number system very simple compared to the last time I voted,” WO2 Tikoidavuilevu said.

He is an officer from Nayau, Lau and has been serving in the RFMF for the past 34 years. He is married with five children and lives in Bau Road, Nausori.

Four of his children would also be casting their vote and are eagerly waiting for their polling day on Wednesday, next week.

“My children are eager to cast their votes and they are all very well aware of the process.”

WO2 Tikoidavuilevu said all eligible voters should cast their vote so that their rights were exercised.

“We need to vote so that after elections we do not complain of anything because even one vote counts,” he said.

“If people don’t vote and complain about various issues after elections, then their complaints would be meaningless.”

WO2 Tikoidavuilevu has hopes whichever government comes into power should take Fiji forward and provide more employment opportunities as well as uplift the standard of living for the poor.

For 28 year old Private Tomasi Valetino, it is his first year to be enlisted in the regular force as well as his first election.

The man from Namosi said he was happy after casting his vote and encouraged all voters to vote wisely and responsibly.

“I thank the government for holding elections this year and I am hopeful that developments done by the current government would be continued by the next government after election.

“It is all individuals’ right and responsibility to ensure their vote counts for a better Fiji for the future.”
