The Social Democratic Liberal Party has confirmed that the nine remaining names of provisional candidates who are yet to be announced have not met the party requirements.
Party Leader Sitiveni Rabuka revealed this in an interview with FBC News today.
Earlier this month, SODELPA announced 42 provisional candidates which does not include sitting parliamentarians like Semesa Karavaki and Mikaele Leawere.
Rabuka says the remaining nine candidates will be announced once they have fulfilled the party requirements.
“Those that have been announced are the ones who have agreed for their names to be announced and have paid up the levy that are due from each of us and also the statutory requirements.”
Rabuka says their preparations for the upcoming General Elections are on track and they are confident of a good outcome.
