He takes over the leadership from Bau Chief, Ratu Epenisa Cakobau, who did not contest the role.

Anare Jale, Roko Avenito Kolikata and Filimoni Soqeta have been elected the vice-presidents.

SODELPA General Secretary, Lenaitasi Duru says these appointments signal a new direction for the party.

“SODELPA is coming to a new age of transition. The old SODELPA, where there was a lot of hustling and bustling and internal conflicts. I’m thankful for the old guard that had stepped in.”

Duru says the party believes the new executives will bring in a breath of fresh air towards their aspirations regarding the General Election.

He adds the party hopes to announce the remaining three provisional candidates later this month.
