WITH no confirmed date yet set for the National General Elections this year, already intense campaigning have begin by most intending candidates.

Unconfirmed reports reaching this paper claimed that already some intending candidates including former Member of Parliaments have begin issuing out building materials, outboard motors to their supporters with the intention of wining their votes.

Some have also even continued collecting voter ID cards from people, despite calls from authorities that such is illegal.

“It is true that some former members have handed out not only substantial amount of cash but also building materials, outboard motors (OBM) and collecting of ID cards.

“This is not only evident here in Honiara but also in the provinces,” a group of voters who wanted to remain anonymous said.

Solomon Star understands that various intending candidates have already started doing awareness in their constituencies however could not yet confirm if campaigning have begun.
