Pre-poll no?

An independent commission has seemingly disallowed pre-polling for its staff. While other similar institutions have cast their votes already, the independent commission’s staff will be joining the rest of the Fijian voters on 14/11.

Told to leave

An Opposition politician,  who is contesting the General Election, did not expect a cold reception at Batiri Village in Macuata, Vanua Levu.

In fact he was shocked when he got told off by the village elders.

He was told to leave with the tape he was trying to show the voters. BTL has been reliably informed that the parliamentarian is losing his popularity.

No campaign zones

When Government delivers on its promises, people never forget it.

Some villages in Bua are no campaign zones for certain political parties. They have got what they asked for from the FijiFirst Government and they want them to continue leading the nation. Equipped with this knowledge, Opposition politicians have adopted the drive-by technique. Election campaign pamphlets are thrown out near the villages from hired vans when they pass these villages.

Many of these pamphlets have ended in the rubbish dumps.

Former Minister told off

A former Minister in the Laisenia Qarase Government was told off by a village chief in Bua for not delivering to the district during his time.

He is trying his luck to be back in parliament after the election, but already he’s losing the support of the voters in that particular village and the district. These voters had previously backed him.

Now they have turned their backs on him.
