MEMBERS of the People's Democratic Party in the North have been urged to talk honestly and genuinely with the community when campaigning for the party.
The party's Northern president, Navitalai Masivuya, told members during a meeting in Labasa at the weekend the way they interacted and presented themselves to the public should reflect the values and principles of the party.
"You must act in such a way that reflects the values of PDP and when you are reaching out to people, speak honestly and genuinely when they ask something about the party," he said.
"There must be inclusiveness in the party and when we are talking to people, we must learn to identify their problems and help them out in whatever way we can.
"The party is for the people and that's why we need to sit, understand them and get feedback from them on how we can intervene and help."
Mr Masivuya said a party focus now was to work with villagers in conducting meetings.
"We will follow the proper channels of approaching the villages.
"This is in our bid to disseminate and create awareness of the party.
"Time is running out and we need to start moving now to educate people about the party and its manifesto."
The meeting also resulted in the discussion of the electoral process and the need to educate people about the voting procedures.
