Slow but steady drive

ASPIRING independent candidate Roshika Deo continued with her signature drive yesterday, this time in Nausori Town.

Ms Deo needs to collect 1000 signatures and submit them with her nomination in August.

So far, she has managed to collect more than half the required number of signatures.

"Before we collect the signatures people want to know who we are and questions are asked before they give their signature. As a result it has been slightly slow but still steady," Ms Deo said.

"Today (yesterday) the target is to get at least 100 signatures. However, on average we have been collecting about 80 signatures in our other drives."

She said the major challenge they faced during their drives was that many people did not carry their voter identification cards with them.

"A lot of people do not carry their voter ID card and they need this to be able to sign."
