Free will voting

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

Mature, responsible and peaceful cam­paigning is expected from all our politi­cal parties so as not to create dissent and political instability among our eligible 630,000+ registered Fijian voters.

They should not be coerced into voting against their own free will and totally un­disturbed.

Surprisingly where are unionists Dan Urai and Felix Anthony hiding in all these as it would be the most opportune time for them to resign from both their very com­fortable highly paid union jobs to contest the election on a party of their choice. So they can holistically bolster their claims and work towards protecting their very few Union member workers “Fundamen­tal Basic Human Rights” they have always advocated and stood for.

I hope they can man up to stand for elec­tion and increase their boisterous mini­mum wage rate claims of $5-$10 an hour with the NFP, FLP and SODELPA for un­established, inexperienced and unquali­fied first time Fijian labourers.

I would also like to ask the Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qili­ho to investigate SODELPA’s Jale O Baba for irresponsibly and selectively exposing the right to privacy and confidentiality of personal information for those registered voters in his Facebook account and it is a very bad political ploy from a frustrated loser in the SODELPA camp.

Again, this is a blatant disregard to our 2013 Fijian Constitutions section 24(1) (a) in the guarantee of Fundamental Rights for every Fijian. It must be nipped in the bud straight away and discouraged imme­diately.

To all eligible Fijian voters, please be­ware of false prophets,.

We must do all possible to eliminate and discourage these types of people from parliamentary representation with their political parties and I ask that we reject them outright with our votes through our 2018 National Election as they are a bad influence on the future of our young Fijian children and our country’s new de­mocracy.

Thank you minister

Sunil Prasad, Nausori

The Ministry of Health and Medical Ser­vices has always been a trouble area in Fiji. Why? Because we had not invested in our doctors and then of course with the involvement of the unions, all has not been well.

What I also know is that the current Min­ister, Rosy Akbar, is one of the hardest working people I have come across. She is a real boon to Fiji’s health system and administrator who knows how to make things happen. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for her tireless service to this nation.

Rainy weather

Manoah Kaleca, Nakasi

We have been experiencing some rainy weather here in the capital city of Suva and caused surrounding areas.

It has caused frustration on motorists because of its effects on the roadworks across the area.

However, we in the Suva area must be grateful for at least we have rain, unlike our brothers and sisters in the Western Division. Please people, don’t forget to carry your umbrellas or rain coats when travelling.

I saw a number of people using scarfs, newspapers and even their bags trying to cover their heads from the heavy down­pour. On another note drink lots of water to keep hydrated. Don’t be fooled by the weather, but be prepared.

Race track

Zane Young, Lautoka

Again, the Tomuka and Sukanaivalu Road junction stretch passing Vakatora Housing towards town is still being used by some drivers who just don’t seem to care about the safety of other road users and pedestrians.

A few times, arriving home from work, I noticed Police officers from the traffic unit parked at a particular spot and booked a number of drivers with their speed cam­eras and I thank the Police traffic unit for that.

Along the same stretch almost two weeks ago I almost lost two loved ones because of these ignorant and reckless drivers.

Maybe the proper authorities could set up road humps along this stretch before a life is lost!

Election promises

Wise Muavono, Lautoka

Some election promises we will hear are; national peace will be declared, all roads and streetlights will be fixed (not tiled), no more water disruptions, basic food items price reduced.

Do you know the mistake career politi­cians make?

It’s forgetting they’ve been appointed and thinking they’ve been anointed.
