SODELPA has decided to go into a coalition government with the People’s Alliance and the National Federation Party.

SODELPA Vice President, Anare Jale has just announced that 13 management board members voted for the People’s Alliance/NFP while 12 voted for the FijiFirst.

Jale says they are ready to be part of the government with PA and NFP.

SODELPA Leader, Viliame Gavoka says democracy has won and they have observed the process to it’s fullest.

Gavoka says it was very close again and came down to the wire.

He says they went into it fully committed ensuring that they have the best for the people of the country.

Gavoka says there was one invalid vote and they could not determine the intention of the voter.

He also says only the legitimate constituency representatives attended the meeting today.

Jale says their next step is to work on their coalition agreement, and this will be signed in the next few days.

He says they have issued the written directive to the SODELPA MPs Viliame Gavoka, Aseri Radrodro and Ifereimi Vasu to vote for the agreed nominee for the People’s Alliance/NFP/SODELPA for Prime Minister and Speaker when Parliament sits in the next few days.

Jale says they wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year and hopefully the new year will be a prosperous one for the people of the country.

President Ratu Wiliame Katonivere is yet to summon parliament to sit.

The 14 days timeframe comes to an end on January 2nd 2023.
