Voters Punctual, But Yasawa Station Records Low Turnout
2022 General Election

Tamusua Village head man Waisile Liolevu said there was a smaller number of voters at the pre-polling station on Wednesday.

However, villagers who had cast their vote turned up early to do so.

“People were happy to vote and the pre-poll time was 8am-10am so people were lining up at the community hall by 6am,” he said.

“I believe we had about 40 to 50 people who voted and there was one disabled elderly person who also voted yesterday (Wednesday).

“There were fewer people voting because many have moved to Viti Levu to the mainland for employment, but in 2018 there were more people who voted during the election,” he said.

“We just want a government that will look after the members of the vanua, we are hopeful that people in Tamusua in the Yasawa Group have chosen a good party that will lead the country forward.”
