Baba and Rabuka speak on SODELPA leadership
An interesting leadership contest is building up in the Social Democratic and Liberal Party after former Prime Minister and 1987 coup leader Sitiveni Rabuka declared his interest that he wants to lead SODELPA to the elections later this year.
Senior member of SODELPA Doctor Tupeni Baba said Rabuka is free to declare his interest however Baba’s personal stand is that a former coup leader should not lead the party.
Doctor Baba who was a victim of the 1987 coup led by Rabuka said he will now leave it to the President of the party and the board to decide on the party leadership.
But Doctor Baba said Rabuka should consider all the issues.
We also questioned Doctor Baba on whether he is also vying for the SODELPA leader’s post.
