MEMBERS of the Naitasiri Provincial Council have been urged to participate in the 2014 General Election in September.

Rural Development permanent secretary Lieutenant Colonel Filipe Alifereti told the provincial council meeting in Vunidawa yesterday participation in the election was part of the process of moving the country forward.

"We all know that the election is going to be held in September this year, so we need all of you to participate," Lt-Col Alifereti said.

He said members of the council needed to be aware of people who might bring about their own political agenda.

"You all must be careful when dealing with such people and you all need to know and understand that it's the people's election, your vote counts," Lt-Col Alifereti said.

Council chairman Eroni Moto Luveniyali said the people of Naitasiri would decide for themselves who they wanted to elect or what they should do during the election.

"It is in line with the Constitution of Fiji 2013, so the people's decision will protect their interests and the community as well."
