Uphill battle for party

Luke Rawalai

SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa says the people of Fiji cannot be fooled anymore.

Ro Teimumu said the people were well aware of the situation in the country and would make good decisions when voting.

She said SODELPA had a late start with their campaign because they had to dig deep into their resources before campaigning.

"We had to dig deep into our resources and we consider ourselves lucky in that we have party members who are willing to assist us," she said.

"We are fortunate that we have these supporters and are not like some parties that are fortunate to be using public funding to finance their campaigns.

"I know we have an uphill battle but we cannot fool people because they know the truth."

Ro Teimumu said people could see clearly which parties were using their own resources.

She said other parties were still looking for candidates and applicants to join their party.

"So even with their resources in their fingertips they are still far behind.

"SODELPA will rise to the challenge but we are certain for one thing that people in Fiji cannot be fooled anymore because they know the truth."
