SODELPA'S Caretaker Leader, Sitiveni Rabuka and his group have walked out of the party's AGM being held in Lami.

This is after Rabuka raised concerns that he does not agree with the interview process for Party Leader and Deputy Leader.

SODELPA MPs, Salote Radrodro, Adi Litia Qionibaravi, Simione Rasova and Ratu Suliano Matanitobua walked out with Rabuka.

SODELPA President Ratu Epenisa Cakobau raised the issue why Rabuka was raising this now as he had already publicly said that he thought the process was well run.

Rabuka told Fijivillage that he is leaving the SODELPA AGM to go and inform his chief Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu of what has transpired during the meeting.

Rabuka says that he is on his way to relate to Ratu Naiqama about the tabua and the yaqona that was presented to him.

He says that they have covered the part of the AGM where he was involved that included him submitting his report for the last two years.

Rabuka says a question was raised about the Interview panel but was not allowed to progress any further.

He says those that asked were told that they were not constitutionally allowed to ask.

Rabuka says this question was then ruled out by the Party President who was also the chair.
