SODELPA needs to move away from being i-Taukei oriented: Rabuka

October 5, 2018 5:10 am

The Social Democratic Liberal Party leader is calling on his supporters to move away from being an i-Taukei oriented party.

Leader, Sitiveni Rabuka says it’s high time the party considers the ambitions of other ethnicities.

Rabuka adds SODELPA will have to focus on a variety of issues if they have any chance of forming the next government.

He says to win votes by campaigning on indigenous rights is a hard task.

The Leader also says the i-Taukei population needs to take their culture and traditions seriously.

He says the party can’t afford to campaign for indigenous rights when the i-Taukei’s are less concerned about these issues.

The SODELPA leader says it is vital for the indigenous people to know the importance of owning their land, qoliqoli and preserving their rights.
