SODELPA Leader Sitiveni Rabuka

SODELPA Leader Sitiveni Rabuka says they will hear from the Supervisor of Elections and Registrar of Political Parties because they will also be submitting the names as part of the resolutions of their Management Board meeting at Kshatriya Hall on Saturday.

He says they have a deadline of May 27th so they have to do it properly and it is backed up by the authority stated in the party constitution.

When asked about the need for a quorum and the presence of a Vice President for the Management Board to meet, Rabuka says there is still a Vice President and that is Vijay Singh.

He says both meetings on Saturday agreed that Vijay Singh is still the Vice President.

However Rabuka says they decided to appoint Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu as the Acting President.

Rabuka says mediation continues in the party and atmosphere in the caucus this morning was normal and very good.

He says there was a fresh commitment to keep the contributions in parliament lively.

When asked about Vijay Singh saying that Rabuka is a casual leader, Rabuka says that is the normal term used when a successor has not been appointed.

He says there has also been division in the party because of the various grievances that have been brought up.

Rabuka says the grievances are from American chapter about the accounting for their donations and the inclusion of a management board member representing them.

He says these grievances are still on the table.
