“This is an election. Going into this election, we are not going to vote for someone who can insult more, but, you’re being expected to preach what you can do for the party or the constituency and when your message convinces, definitely, you’ll be emerged victorious”, he told a gathering of his supporters at the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba NPP party office after he had filed his nomination form.
