The Suva High Court will hear submissions on 10th December this year in relation to a legal challenge filed against SODELPA, the President of the party, Ro Filipe Tuisawau, Anare Jale, Adi Litia Qionibaravi and Usaia Waqatairewa.

The challenge was filed by SODELPA members and constituency executives.

The SODELPA members led by the party’s Suva Constituency President, Watisoni Nata have filed the action as they allege that SODELPA and the executives named in the action have breached the party constitution, the Political Parties Act and the Constitution of Fiji.

Other members who have filed the action against their own party and executives include SODELPA Youth Wing President, Jope Koroisavou, SODELPA’s Vice President of the Women’s Forum, Doctor Mere Samisoni, the party’s Secretary of the Women’s Forum, Emele Duituturaga, SODELPA Women’s Wing Lami President, Kesaia Makita and the party’s Lami Youth executive, Asenaca Ravulo.

They say the court challenge filed has been done to strengthen the party’s accountability for its voters and supporters.

They say that the elections held in Savusavu and subsequent actions thereafter, have been alleged to have been done in breach of not only the SODELPA Constitution, but also the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Act and the Constitution of the Republic of Fiji.
