SODELPA candidates meet

Shayal Devi
Sunday, August 10, 2014

CANDIDATES need to be well versed with their party manifesto.

This was the message during a special meeting of the Social Democratic and Liberal Party at the Lautoka Hotel yesterday.

SODELPA western coordinator Luke Ratuvuki said the main aim of the meeting was to clear some of the issues candidates had before heading out for further party campaigns.

"First and foremost, we have to step up and intensify our commitment and involvement for this campaign month," he said.

"Each of our candidates should fully understand our manifesto and that is what we have been emphasising."

He said the candidates had also shared their experiences from the places that they had visited.

"Each candidate also presented the scenario, the reality that they face on the ground and some are very pertinent issues that we recorded today (yesterday).

"In particular, there was much emphasis on youths and the difficulties people face in understanding the whole election exercise.

"Making it worse, the interest of youths is totally different than the interest of parents."
