Be the change independent candidate Roshika Deo has offered her support for the newly elected Government. Ms Deo said the people have spoken and we must respect that decision.

“People still have to know a lot more civic rights and more awareness to be done in our country,” Ms Deo said.

“There are still a lot of people who we rely from our community outreach and people still do not understand the function of a Parliament, the function of government and separation of powers.

“These things are very important if we need to be democratic country-it is not all about voting, it is about creative thinking citizens that hold the government accountable. Now we need to focus and we look forward to 2018. I respect the decision people have made and it is also respecting the kind of feelings the people have and meeting some people.”

Meanwhile, Ms Deo has visited some places in Labasa thanking them for their tremendous support on election day and all those who had supported her.

“It was really interesting experience as they had told me that they did not vote for me because they had that fear but it was very challenging and I accept their decision,” she said.
