ALTHOUGH public campaigning has not started, members of the People's Democratic Party in Labasa are adamant of a positive outcome when they meet members of the community.

Northern branch president Navitalai Masivuya said the first public meeting would be held at Vunivau.

"That will also be our first public campaign and we will begin our community visits from there," he said.

"We will cover all of Vanua Levu and reach out to the people through our public meetings.

"We will also work closely with the youths as they are significant members of society, so we have brought in a youth leader to look after that area and with our support, we are positive of a good campaign."

Mr Masivuya met his committee at Bulileka Village last Saturday where they discussed strategic campaign plans.

Part of their plan is to also visit villages and with the assistance of the branch's vice president, Adi Sivo Ravuwale, the members are confident of good public meetings.

"We believe in good governance and that is a principle of our party, so we will talk about that to the communities. Adi Sivo is a chief in Bulileka and she will be in touch with her relatives in other chiefly families of Macuata where we will take our campaign to."

Plans to launch the branch in Taveuni will be done soon and a trip to Kubulau in Bua has also been discussed.
