Poll race moves overseas

THE People's Democratic Party has started its overseas campaign.

Party leader Felix Anthony and president Lynda Tabuya are in New Zealand to campaign after accepting invitations from Fijian communities in Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton.

Mr Anthony said the release of the party's manifesto last weekend generated much interest in the community locally and overseas as well.

He claimed people wanted to hear from the party.

"PDP intends to educate voters on its manifesto, policies and mandate — empowering the people of Fiji and effecting real change," Mr Anthony said.

According to PDP, Mr Anthony and Ms Tabuya are guest speakers at a dinner fundraiser hosted by supporters in Auckland today.

Meanwhile, Mr Anthony had earlier said he wanted a Fiji that was one and not divided.

"I want a nation that we are proud to call our home. A nation we can believe in.

"I want to renew faith in politics through a PDP government that will govern in the interest of the people who are the majority, the very people who work hard, play by the rules and pay their dues, yet feel let down by a system that favours a few."

The team returns on July 21.
