Public happy to vote again to determine Government

Talifa Taumalepulufaga, 50, Leauvaa

"Yes I will vote in another general election because the recent election we had was something else. I believe that by voting again the country will then be able to have a government formed." 

Fata F Faosiliva, 54, Afega

"Yes I will vote again if there's another election in order to know which party will win. But another election will also cost people money to pay for transportation, like people who are living here in Upolu and have to travel to Savai'i in order to cast their vote. They have to pay for bus fair and ferry tickets, it may seem easy to vote again during another election but there are also obstacles."

Kalotoa Iosefa, 66, Fusi Safata

"I will vote if there is another general election to ensure that our country will be able have a government formed. In fact there should be another general election to determine which party the voters want to govern our country."

Vitoria Nansen, 55, Leauvaa

"If only the 2021 General Election was held with honesty there will not be any need to hold another election. I am disappointed with the recent general election and I will not vote again if another election is held."

Rosana Manusina, 37, Toamua

"I will vote again if there's another general election, I hope that after the second election Samoa will officially have a government. It is taking too long for the results of the winning party to be decided so another election is probably the best option in order for a government to be formed."

Matile Mulipola, 42, Moamoa

"I am happy to vote if there will be another election because there hasn’t been a winning party. I thought that a new party is going to govern our country but it's taking too long to get results. It is useful to have another election to know which party won the general election, but I'm looking forward to another election if there's one. But I don't want Tuilaepa and his party to win again, he did a lot of changes with our electoral processes."
