Four weeks of campaigning is not enough especially in the rural areas.

This was the finding of the FijiFirst’s Macuata province campaign manager Mika Cabealawa.

“Especially in rural areas around Vanua Levu,” Mr Cabealawa said.

“We couldn’t reach some of the villages. However the adverts on television really helped reach those communities.

“But after the campaign we now know which villages, settlements, communities accepted FijiFirst and those that didn’t support us.

“He said they had informed the public not to listen to the lies being said against their party but to focus on the good things FijiFirst leader Voreqe Bainimarama had done.

“We had been told by some villagers that they were told not to support FijiFirst but I told them Mr Bainimarama would support all races.

“I am really happy and I thank all those in our campaign team for the big effort they had put in and now the results are good.

“We know we have done our part as a campaign team.

“We would like to thank the Bainimarama Government and wish him all the best in bringing back the glory.”
