Now that the election is over and the cabinet is formed, there is speculation as to what the government will focus on first. Our reporter took to the streets to ascertain what the public feels should be the priority. The specific question posed was, “What issue would you like the government to address first?” Below are the responses of 12 individuals.

“Well, I hope that they will look at reopening the borders so that we can get some relief.”
