SUPPORTERS of the Fiji Labour Party, according to the party's vice president Monica Raghwan, have strengthened the party even more.

Speaking to this newspaper in Suva yesterday, Ms Raghwan said in the lead-up to the September 17 polls, the support received from supporters from around the country was encouraging.

"We just really want to thank our supporters so much and we're grateful to them for understanding," Ms Raghwan said.

"We've been strengthened by the calls and the support we've been getting from all around saying that they're just standing there waiting."

Ms Raghwan said the support proved the importance of being part of a "people's party".

"And that's one thing — that's the strength of a led-party — indeed we are a people's party and the fact is that people have understood the situation and now they are standing and waiting. They are standing and waiting and watching and we really appreciate that."

Ms Raghwan added that while the party was looking forward to their Annual Delegates Conference scheduled for June, their management board was standing in its place.
