SODELPA Leader Viliame Gavoka.

SODELPA Leader Viliame Gavoka says they are concerned that not everyone fully understands the Climate Change Bill which is why they need to have more dialogue and consultations on it.

While speaking on the debate to pass the Climate Change Bill in Parliament, Gavoka says a vast majority of the people do not understand these things.

Gavoka says once again it is a tragedy with FijiFirst where they rush over the people of Fiji.

He says there is a conference in Scotland next month and the champion of COP23 will say that they are one of the six countries who have passed the Climate Change Bill.

Gavoka says that appears to be the motive here.

Gavoka also says they agree that climate change is an immediate danger to this planet and steps need to be taken to mitigate the effects to humanity.

He says however this matter could have been taken to the people in a more inclusive way.
