Voters have questioned themselves on who will be prioritized in the Rural Constituency Development Funds (RCDF) for this year.
This came after the RCDF forms were made available last week to voters from the 50 constituencies of the country.
A voter who wants to be called as Isaac told the Solomon Star that he wanted to apply for a project but he feared that the Member of Parliament (MP) for his constituency will only be prioritizing those that voted for him.
“I really want to get support from our MP for a family project but the thing is, me and my family didn’t vote for him in last year’s general election.
“This is the fear that I have in me and it’s like a wall that stops me from getting an RCDF project form,” Isaac told this paper yesterday.
Speaking to this paper yesterday, a group of women also shared similar thoughts.
“Last year, we voted for a female candidate in our constituency.
“We are unfortunate that she could not make it into parliament so we do not have the nerve in requesting a project funding from our current MP.
“We feel that he will just support and prioritize those that voted for him so it’s like a waste of time for us applying for a project or assistance from our leader,” a spokes person for the women said.
Meanwhile, they said that they are just hoping and praying that their MP can be able to support them and their families in the next four years rather than waiting for the next general election without receiving any assistance from their current MPs.
