SODELPA leader Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa says the decision by NFP to seek the court's advice for changes to be made to the ballot paper was a good call.

Ro Teimumu said while the party was still unhappy with the ballot, the call by NFP showed the frustration of other parties as well.

"What I would say here is that party (NFP) has taken proper steps to address difficulty that all the parties are facing and they have taken the right step because their supporters are coming back and telling them," she said.

Ro Teimumu said all parties agreed that the ballot paper was very confusing.

"The ballot paper is very confusing, it's not only confusing just for the rural voter, it's also very much confusing for the urban voter."

She also confirmed they continued to receive applications from those wanting to join the party as candidates.

"And we are still interviewing applicants that are coming through, we have people that are applying and we are still going through those interviews.

"We thought we would have completed our interviews, but because of the number of good applicants, we are interviewing most of them so that by the time we have our meeting next month, we will have all the candidates confirmed."

The announcement of candidates will be made during the party's management board and special general meeting scheduled for June 6.
