Rabuka resigns from SODELPA
September 3, 2015 1:22 am
Former Prime Minister and member of Social Democratic Liberal Party Sitiveni Rabuka has confirmed resigning from the party.
Rabuka says he’s done this in the best interest of SODELPA.
Certain members of SODELPA paid for Rabuka’s fee to be eligible for the Party’s Special General Meeting, that didn’t go down well with the former Prime Minister.
“My resignation was that I heard party members had contributed $2 for my registration as a member of the party so that I could attend Saturday’s meeting. I am not broke it was not a matter of the payment of the subscription, it was a matter of principle”.
Rabuka in his resignation letter states he’s not been active in any party matters since he was barred from contesting in the elections last year and it would be better for SODELPA to find other people who can take the party forward.
Rabuka handed in his resignation to the General Secretary of the SODELPA party Pio Tabaiwalu on Monday.
