THE People's Democratic Party will hold fundraising events across the country in the hope of raising about $250,000 for campaigns.

Party leader Felix Anthony said while the fundraising events were not a high priority, they would need funds to carry out their operations.

"We have fundraising program and we will be fundraising in all the districts," he said.

"We also have a fundraising event in Auckland coming up later this month, a fundraising event in Australia."

He said each candidate would also be required to raise their own funds.

"We are not going to put any levy on our nominees other than the fact that they will be required to put a deposit of $1000 on nomination day but we will be asking our candidates if they were to support themselves for elections day.

"How much we need really depends on what we want to do in terms of advertising, in terms of campaigning and travelling throughout the country.

"We are looking at approximately $200,000 to $250,000 come election day.

"We are not sure we will be able to get those funds but we are aiming to get that.

"We need to be realistic.

"We either can start doing campaigns or do fundraising but we can't do both but our focus really is on the campaign and the fundraising is just going to be a side event."
