The Namosi Joint Venture (NJV) this week facilitated the electronic voter registration of over 70 local employees, contractors, and members of the local community at its Waisoi Camp in Namosi.

The NJV sought approval from the Roko Tui Namosi, who is in charge of the registration process in the province if the registration could be done at Waisoi camp and this was agreed to.

NJV then ensured that workers had all the necessary documents required for the registration process.

4 Voter registration officials arrived at the Waisoi camp on Wednesday 11th July to conduct the registration.

Kitchen and accommodation supervisor Maria Samuels welcomed the opportunity to register.

“This was a big help for us as we did not have to travel all the way to an urban centre. I am really happy to be given this opportunity,” she said.

NJV Country Manager Greg Morris told employees the right to vote was a fundamental right, and the company wanted to ensure that all its employees could register despite being in a remote location.
