RA provincial administrator Kelepi Kubunameca has issued a stern warning to all government workers in Ra to stay out of politics in the lead-up to the elections.

At a meeting with the Ra District Advisory Council, Mr Kubunameca said: "I want blameless people and those with no agenda working for the good of the province.

"If you are a district councillor or a civil servant, your role is to serve the people and not have an influence or impose your political convictions because it is unethical."

Mr Kubunameca said it was important for all officials to focus on their areas of responsibilities ahead of polling.

Also highlighted at the meeting were topics to help generate business for Ra.

These included investments in tourism and the sugar industry, and also the fight against dengue.
