The Tui Nasesevia Maikeli Kalawa is looking forward to supporting any government that comes into power.  The 66-year chief admitted he had political party preferences but this would not deter him from working for a better Fiji. He cast his vote yesterday at the Loqi Settlement Community Hall in the highlands of Ba.

“I am willing to accept any party that will form the government and I hope that whatever party it will be will take Fiji forward in terms of development,” he said.

Mr Kalawa said there was a definite improvement in the electoral process compared to previous elections.

“There are so many changes in this year’s election compared to the past years, it is not hard or complicated like it used to be.

“For us the most important change is the location of the pre-polling venue. Before we would travel to Vunamoli or Korovuto but now it is just a walk away,” he said.

Meanwhile, 47-year old, Tevita Mociu described the election process as easy to understand.

“We had the election team at Nawaqadamu to show us the actual process of how to vote in this year’s election, so we were well versed with the process.

“So it was very easy for us to understand when we came here and with the assistance from the pre- polling officers, it was faster than I thought,” he said.

Mr Mociu hopes to make his vote count and help Fiji move forward.

“I hope that the party I voted for will keep their promise in taking Fiji forward,” he said.
