Backing for independent

Nasik Swami
Tuesday, July 15, 2014

ASPIRING politician Roshika Deo says she is no longer experiencing problems collecting the 1000 signatures in order to register as an independent candidate.

Ms Deo, who is in the North, said media coverage assisted her campaign and people had started to come forward to show their support.

"We really appreciate the support of the people and their eagerness to assist," she said.

Ms Deo said this Saturday; she would hold her final signature drive in Labasa Town, outside Ram Jattans Supermarket.

"We urge people to bring their voter ID card on the day to sign and to come over and meet our team in Labasa," she said.

Ms Deo said her manifesto would be an outcome of nearly a year's consultation and outreach with diverse communities all over Fiji.

"We had planned to deliver a manifesto that people related to, had ownership of and that we worked together to achieve.

"We used several strategies to collect information — through discussions on social media, community visits, presentations by experts in different areas, acquiring information from the work done by CSOs and from our own experiences and realities."

She said her team would end the community outreach this month and synthesise all the information and have the manifesto ready by next month.
