SUPPORT from chiefs in the Western Division has been crucial for the Social Democratic and Liberal Party.

During a visit by party officials to the Western Division over the weekend, party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa said the big turnout during SODELPA's visit could not have been possible if not for their visits to the villages in May.

"This couldn't have happened if we hadn't made the previous visits in May and June when we went to visit the chiefs and people of the various vanua," she said.

"We visited and approached them in the traditional manner and if it wasn't for that, I don't think the turnout would have been like what we witnessed."

Ro Teimumu personally thanked the chiefs for their support and all the party supporters in the Western Division.

"I would like to pay tribute to the chiefs who were here in support of their people and the vanua, namely the Tui Vitogo, Tui Vuda and also the Taukei Vidilo.

Ro Teimumu thanked the party's supporters in Nadroga, the Nadi area and Ba and Ra for their support.
