A family of four from Nadogo Village is looking forward to voting today in the pre-polling.

Viliame Moko, 78, who is also the oldest person in the village, said he had been waiting for pre-polling to start.

Mr Moko said he had already decided on the party he would vote for.

“I’m really happy that I will be voting today and I hope that my vote makes a difference,” he said.

His wife, Sereima Vakasigaleka, 68, said although they were staying in the interior of the Northern Division, she was glad that she would take part in forming the next government.

“We are hopeful that whichever party forms the next government will always put people first.”

She said that she would not want instability in the country.

Their son, Rokoroba Rokovavanua, 32, said he would be voting for the second time in his life and was eager to cast his vote.

He said youths in the village were also eager to vote.

“We all want to choose a government under which Fiji prospers,” Mr Rokovavanua said.

He urged all young voters to make sure to cast their votes.

His wife, Usenia Susu, 22, who will be voting for the first time, said she too had been thinking about it and was ready to vote.

Turaga Ni Koro (village headman) Joshua Buliwalana, 47, said that approximately 70 people were voting from the village. “Everyone is looking forward to it,” he said.
