Strength in spirit

Shayal Devi
Wednesday, August 06, 2014

APART from having physical strength, our candidates need to be strong spiritually as well, says Social Democratic and Liberal Party's western coordinator Luke Ratuvuki.

During a meeting at Lautoka Hotel on Monday, he said a suggestion had been made from their Nadi candidates and supporters to fast in order to strengthen their spiritual resolve.

"There are so many restrictions that you read, see and receive from the Electoral Act and various amendments in the decree that are coming through," Mr Ratuvuki said.

"It is difficult to cope and comply with these things. So apart from their (candidates) physical strength and resources, it is important to be focused spiritually as well and reposition themselves."

He said the 16 candidates announced for the Western Division so far were working very hard in terms of campaigning.

"At the moment, we are just giving out a broad description of our constituency boundaries."
