After looking at the unofficial results, Roshika Deo says she accepts she will not be in parliament. However, there are still plans for Be the Change to move on.

“The results are a clear indication of how the people have voted and looks like this time it was not meant to be,” Ms Deo said.

“I think, as an independent candidate, for us it had been a journey and we have come a very long way and for us it is just a beginning. But we have a lot of plans for the future.”

Her hope remains that in the future, come the next four years, Be the Change will take root.

“There will be far more people involved in Be the Change, after four years, not only me,” Ms Deo said.

“We’d always planned to convert Be the Change into somewhat a political party with a different structure.

“So we have been doing our research for the last year and we are trying to have no hierarchy structure with president and other structure but just have candidates.”

While thanking her supporters for their hard work, effort and time, Ms Deo waxed emotional.

“I just want to say to the people that they’d been great, the support had been awesome. Some people have really gone out of the way to really provide the support,” she said.

“I just want to say thank you to every one for putting so much effort, time and energy to give us an experience and to allow us to take on issues of the national interest that were not spoken about or addressed.”

Ms Deo said the journey of Be the Change, had only begun and they would grow more options for the movement in the coming years.
