Suspended Social Democratic Liberal Party member Sitiveni Rabuka attempted to have Adi Litia Qionibaravi re-instated as General Secretary.
This was revealed during informal discussions at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday.
Suspended SODELPA lawyer Tanya Waqanika confronted Rabuka on the issue, saying it needs to be dealt with in a transparent manner.
“Just for everyone’s information that everyone is well aware that you went to see SOE Sir on Monday to ask for Adi Litia to be reinstated and I believe we come with clean hands just to let you know that we come to discuss this in transparency. In my utmost duty Sir I have done that for the task force and for the party and we have come with clean hands.”
Rabuka admitted that he went to see the Registrar of Political Parties on Tuesday, but not have Adi Litia re-instated.
“Another party told me they were going on Monday and if they don’t ask me, that means they don’t want me to be with them. So I went the following day. I didn’t even ask the Supervisor of Elections whether he could tell me who they met the day before.”
Waqanika then informed Rabuka that the Registrar, Mohammed Saneem had himself confirmed this information.
Emele Duituturaga has been appointed General Secretary of the suspended Social Democratic Liberal Party.
The Management Board confirmed her appointment after advertising the position and receiving eight applications.
