FIJI Labour Party candidates will be responsible for the transportation of supporters to polling centres during election day.

Speaking during a campaign in Labasa over the weekend party leader Mahendra Chaudhry says candidates have been given the necessary documentation regarding the elections procedures and polling station locations around the country.

Mr Chaudhry says candidates have been tasked to organise transportation to pick-up the party's supporters.

"I am very happy with the support we are getting and backing has been picking up lately," he said.

"I will be travelling to Savusavu on Sunday (yesterday) before going further to Taveuni and returning to Suva on Tuesday.

"I will also tour the West prior to the party's preparation for the final stages before the elections."

Mr Chaudhry said they still had a lot of organisational work to do before elections, adding they would concentrate on getting the logistics for transportation of supporters to polling stations.

"During this tour I have gone as far as Nasarawaqa, Seaqaqa, Muanidevo, Dreketi and Vunivau," he said.

"People still talk about their concerns regarding poverty; high cost of living with poor health and medication services.

"These very issues will be addressed by the Fiji Labour Party if we return to parliament and I am very positive about the chances of this happening."
