A senior executive of the Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua (SDL) party has disputed reports in the media that the party has presented their submission to the Constitution Commision.
Mataiasi Ragigia said to the Fiji Sun that the submissions made to the Commission last Friday and Saturday were by individuals who were party supporters. Mr Ragigia was a former minister in the Laisenia Qarase-led government.
Mr Ragigia said the official submission of the party will be towards the second week of September or early November when the Commission has rounded up their consultations around the country.
“The official submission will be presented by the party president or one of the senior executive party members,” he said.
Meanwhile, SDL party president, Solomoni Naivalu confirmed last Sunday that he was at the first public consultations in which Mosese Vosarogo and Ratu Kamarusi appeared to be presenters on behalf of the SDL party.
However, efforts to obtain further comments from Mr Naivalu were not successful.
