SODELPA to adopt a new approach under Rabuka
July 4, 2016 2:26 am
i-Taukei culture and traditions are not under threat says newly elected leader of the Social Democratic Liberal Party Sitiveni Rabuka.
Speaking exclusively on FBCTV’s 4 The Record Programme last night, Rabuka said that the political stand taken by his party before the 2014 elections was misguided.
He adds that while i-Taukei issues will remain central to the party’s concerns, there will be no racist elements.
“If they had wanted to project an indigenous support image, and found out that they only received – at most – 46% of the vote they should have changed and mellowed down on that area.”
Rabuka was elected SODELPA leader on June 24th but his position is already under threat as Party members have filed complaints against him.
He confirmed that a number of complaints are now with the party President and will need to be considered by the SODELPA management board.
He also confirms that the Board can decide to remove him based on the complaints.
