PRIME Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama has urged the people of Tailevu to take part in the upcoming General Election that will take place on September 17.

He said people of Tailevu needed to be registered.

"I thank the chiefs and leaders of the province of Tailevu for their tremendous support, especially with government in moving the country forward," Rear Admiral Bainimarama said.

"I have been hearing that a lot of people have been saying that the general election will not take place this year. I would like to reassure the people of Tailevu that the general election will surely take place on September 17.

"People need to consider the importance of the new Constitution, especially during the General Election."

He said it was the responsibility of provincial council members to inform the people of Tailevu about being registered.

He added a lot of issues were being raised by other political parties contesting the election, issues concerning native land and the Great Council of Chiefs to be reinstated.

"These issues are all part of these political parties' agenda, as to change the mind-set of people especially the iTaukei.

"I would like to reassure the people of Fiji that the changes that have taken place are for the people and that it will bring about more development in the country."
