SUPPORTERS of certain former Members of Parliament (MP) denied reports of their candidates being chased or banned from campaigning in certain communities.
Reginald Maemae, a campaign manager for former MP for Ulawa Ugi, said reports about James Tora being chased was fabricated to discredit Mr Tora who has about half the support of registered voters in Ulawa.
Mr Maemae said the reports are only fabricated and nothing of such had happened.
He said Tora has completed his campaign without any disturbances and half of the population of Ulawa have registered their support for Tora.
He said it could only be a strategy of other candidates’ supporters to spoil the reputation of their candidate.
Similar sentiments were echoed from close supporters of former MP of East Honiara Douglas Ete, denying reports of Mr Ete being chased during his campaign launch at Burns Creek.
Alick Basila of Burns Creek said there was no such thing as the reports have claimed.
Mr Basila said it is not good to report false information to the public.
He said Mr Ete’s campaign went smoothly without any disturbances and claimed those reports were assumptions of people.
Mr Basila said it is important for reporters to follow candidates during their campaign to actually see what is happening than to report on assumptions and reports that are not true.
