No Coalition for SDL and FLP

The Soqosoqo Duatava ni Lewenivanua party leader Laisenia Qarase says they will not be in coalition with the Fiji Labour Party in the 2014 elections.
However they will only be working closely on discussing constitutional matters.
Qarase says he wants to keep his options open and he’s talking to other parties as well.
Early last month the FLP held its annual general meeting and surprisingly it was announced they were in talks with SDL.
“I don’t know whether the term joining forces is the right one, we are certainly not going to be on coalition; we are trying to find some common grounds on which to make submissions relating to the new constitution.”
Meanwhile Qarase is also talking with other parties.
“I have been talking to the leader of the Fiji Labour Party as everybody knows, I have also been talking to Mick Beddoes the leader of the General Voters Party, I propose to talk to the NFP as well as part of this process, so coalition with Labour, No, joining forces perhaps very limited work together.”
