THE president of the People's Democratic Party in the North will take leave from next week following medical advice by doctors.

Navitalai Masivuya has been advised by doctors to take leave because of a medical condition he suffers from.

"It's just a break so don't count me out," he joked.

"I need some rest and I will take that before I return to continue my duty as president.

"It will be the exciting period when I return because it will be peak months leading to the election.

"While I am away, the members will continue their public meetings and I am confident they can do the job."

Mr Masivuya said a good rest before the election was a good idea. "We have not lost hope and we will not because we believe in good governance and that is our message to the people.

"However, during my leave I will keep in touch with my party members for updates about their campaign and work with the community."

Adi Sivo Ravuwale will act as president while Mr Masivuya is away.

"I look forward to the challenge and I know we have all the support for our party because people have called me and visited me personally asking for PDP to be fast with the campaigns in villages and communities," she said.

"I'm no stranger to politics as I have always been involved with past governments, so campaigning is not a problem. What's important is for people to make the right choice at the polls."
