JUNE is an important month for the Social Democratic Liberal Party as they will be announcing their candidates to represent the party and also start campaigning.

SODELPA party confirms that they will be releasing the initial names of the nominees of the party on June 6 this year.

This was highlighted by SODELPA media manager Sainiana Radrodro during the party's visit to Bau Island on Wednesday.

Mrs Radrodro said the releasing of the names of the representative of the party would have to be reached by the ntional executive committee but they could confirm that the names would be released during a special general meeting in June.

SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa said they would name and introduce the party candidates and also launch the party manifesto in June.

"Towards the end of June after we have gone through those events we will then start campaigning properly," Ro Teimumu said.

"Then the SODELPA nominees will know who they are and they will be able to go out and campaign."

Party general secretary Pio Tabaiwalu said SODELPA is a party that knows what its doing and has won two elections in 2001 and 2006 and knows how to run government.

Mr Tabaiwalu said the party has worked on its manifesto for about six months and they had a mini-manifesto that the representatives would take with them when they campaigned.

He said the party manifesto would include education, health, social welfare and the retirement age to be 60 years.
