WHILE political party heavyweights gathered at the Fijian Elections Office on Saturday for the draw of the National Candidates List, SODELPA top guns Ro Teimumu Kepa and Pio Tabaiwalu were campaigning in New Zealand.

The party members returned on Monday and according to them, it was a successful visit.

SODELPA general secretary Pio Tabaiwalu said the trip went well.

"We spoke to some 200 to 300 people who came to hear what our strategy for the election is. I can safely say that there was support for us," said Mr Tabaiwalu.

"There were some clarifications that people wanted regarding postal ballots and we helped with that as well."
