THE Social Democratic and Liberal Party is concerned with a number of issues as we head towards the September 17 polls.

In a meeting with villagers of Sabeto yesterday, party's western co-ordinator Luke Ratuvuki urged villagers to know their rights as voters because this had been an issue in the previous elections.

He said one of the real issues also faced in previous elections were illiterate and handicapped voters.

The former member of parliament said this was going to be one of the issues party officials would try to address in the lead up to election.

Mr Ratuvuki also stressed on the importance of registering.

He added that there was a need to address the issue and that villagers needed strategies and advice to be let known of these election issues.

The SODELPA will kick-start their campaign after their courtesy visits to chiefs in various villages around the country.
