PEOPLES Democratic Party believes in consultation with the common people to gauge the type of developments they need.

Speaking during the party's campaign at Qoibau Village outside Labasa Town, the party's Northern president Navitalai Masivuya told villagers that they believed in sitting down and talking with people on the sort of developments they needed.

Mr Masivuya said it was true that a lot of developments had been fostered by previous government but he felt that they failed to consult with people at the grassroots level to gauge what sort of developments would best suit them.

"PDP believes in consultation with individuals on a fair playing field," he said.

"If no consultation is done then developments will not benefit people at the grassroots level no matter how good the intention of the program is.

"We believe in bringing development to the doorsteps of commoners and ensuring that it benefits them."

Mr Masivuya said PDP believed in quality education for the children of the nation, improving health services and developing relationships with developed countries.

He also told villagers that if elected to parliament the party would ensure that issues faced by sugarcane farmers would be resolved.
