Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says the Social Democratic Liberal Party is free to join FijiFirst.

However, he stated that SODELPA will have to inform its coalition partners about its decision, as the Party will also need to secede from the coalition agreement.

The Prime Minister was responding to a question about hints by SODELPA General Secretary Viliame Takayawa that they may consider joining FijiFirst.

He says he is sure SODELPA will come up with a resolution, whether it is consensus or majority, and he will wait for it.
