Dear Editor – I write to fully support the call by others to make available out of constituency polling booths here in Honiara. The reasons are already given by at least two of your contributors: A Sasako and Raynet Josh Pitalulu.
All voters of this country need to be able to exercise their right to vote, irrespective of where they are.
Out of constituency polling booths would also provide a level playing field for all intending candidates. Without them, only “rich” candidates would be able to transport their voters to and from their respective constituencies, a denial of equal opportunity for other candidates who might not have the financial muscle, but are still good potential leaders.
The need for out of constituency voting facilities are long overdue.
