'Consultations then manifesto'

Luke Rawalai
Thursday, June 26, 2014

BE the Change campaign will carry out consultations with people at all levels of society before drafting a manifesto, which is expected to be released in August.

Campaign leader Roshika Deo said political parties which already had manifestos before going on campaigns failed to reflect the real needs of the people they promised to serve.

Ms Deo said in those instances, people did not have ownership of the manifesto.

"A lot of the times, people felt that these manifestos were not real and did not truly reflect their lives failing to impact on the issues they face," she said.

"As a campaigning group, it is about ensuring that we have an approach that works from the community at the micro and macro level.

"Therefore, what we are trying to do now is gather information and visit communities to get a feel of the real need out there."
