Rabuka admits lack of Indo Fijian support for SODELPA
October 5, 2018 1:09 am
SODELPA Leader Sitiveni Rabuka has for the first time admitted the lack of support from Indo Fijians towards his party is because of the political upheaval of 1987.
Speaking at a campaign meeting in Suva last night, Rabuka has also stated fighting for Indigenous rights alone will not win them the upcoming Election.
Known to be a party that fights for i-Taukei rights, Rabuka has spoken about a change of mindset towards indigenous rights.
Rabuka says the party cannot rely on i-Taukei issues only to get them into government.
The SODELPA Leader says they cannot afford to be seen as a party only for the i-Taukei’s and their policies should embrace other ethnic groups.
Getting votes from the Indo-Fijian community will be a hard task for SODELPA and Rabuka has admitted that other ethnicities have turned away from SODELPA because of his political reputation.
Knowing the fact that SODELPA will have to dig deep if they are to have a chance of forming the next government, Rabuka says broadening their campaign issues will get them on track to achieve the party’s goal.
