Electoral process protected

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

I fully agree with Nemani Delaibatiki’s analysis that security in the electoral process is absolutely essential (FS 19/8) given the glitches happening in other countries during elections.

Any attempts to undermine the polls should be met with equal force.

My only worry is vote counting is now done in voting stations where saboteurs exist.

Surrender Is Not An Option

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva

I love the words spoken by SODELPA leader Sitiveni Rabuka, saying that “surrender is not an option” in working hard to make Fiji free (FS 17/8).

For Victorians who belong to Verata House, our motto is Never Say Die!

Mr Rabuka is wise in his words in saying that “it is more about navigating themselves on what is right and what is to be done more than just defeating a party that opposed them”.

It is true that for FijiFirst to lose the coming elections, the other seven political parties would need to form a coalition.

If this is the only game plan, then the masses who are currently enjoying the excellent service delivery of the current Government will come out in full force on election day, to see to it that their caring Government remain in power.

Mr Rabuka spoke of two words that needs to be acted upon and that is: navigating themselves “on what is right” and “what is to be done”.

Fijian voters will want to see, hear or read what the FijiFirst Government did wrong in their current four years reign and what the Coalition Parties will do to correct the wrong.

Also what the Coalition proposes to do to build on the achievement of our current Government.

Give all the facts and figures and allow the FijiFirst Government to respond.

This way, Fijian voters will cast their one vote knowing in their hearts the best Government to move the nation forward for another four years.

At ground level, I believe the masses have their two thumbs up for our current Government, but this can change if all the Government shortfalls are exposed and proven!

World Humanitarian Day

Neelz Singh, Lami

World Humanitarian Day is observed annually on August 19.

The purpose is to honour all humanitarians who have tirelessly worked to further and promote a variety of humanitarian causes, all over the world.

It is also a day to remember those people who have lost their lives in the service of a humanitarian cause.

This World Humanitarian Day we continue to bring attention to the millions of civilians affected by armed conflict every day.

People in cities and towns struggle to find food, water, and safe shelter, while fighting drives millions from their homes.

Children are recruited and used to fight and their schools are destroyed.

Women are abused and humiliated.

As humanitarian workers deliver aid and medical workers treat the wounded and sick they are directly targeted, treated as threats and prevented from bringing relief and care to those in desperate need.

World Humanitarian Day is an annual reminder of the need to act to alleviate the suffering.

It is also an occasion to honour the humanitarian workers and volunteers toiling on the front lines of crises.

I pay tribute to these dedicated women and men who brave danger to help others at far greater risk.

It’s Hard to Find a Good Samaritan who cares to help without any cause.
