SODELPA officials asked  to give more assets info

February 10, 2014 | Filed under: Fiji News | Posted by:




Some political parties are believed to be being asked for further information required on their officials’ declaration of assets.. It is understood some declarations did not contain all the required information. The Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) has claimed that its offi cials have been asked to declare their assets again. Senior party member, Doctor Tupeni Baba, said SODELPA was in talks with other political parties to see how to respond to this request. It is understood that the Elections Offi ce had sought additional information as required by the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree 2013. The decree sets out a modern and transparent process for the registration and conduct of political parties. It also requires accountability and transparency with respect to the funding and accounts of political parties. It says any political offi ce bearer must make a declaration of income and assets on behalf of themselves, their spouse and any children. It adds this includes total assets – including money and property – in Fiji and abroad – along with their business interests, directorships and gifts. Any liabilities must also be listed. It says any registered political party must provide details of all assets and expenditure, including donations. It says political parties may only be funded by membership fees and contributions from individuals and all sources of funding must be disclosed. Questions have been emailed to the Registrar of Political Parties, Mohammad Saneem, for a response to the SODELPA claims. No reply had been received by the time this edition went to press. National Federation Party president, Raman Pratap Singh, said their party had not received any further request for declaration of assets. “We are required by law for some declaration by the end of January which we have done. SODELPA may have been requested for it, but not our party,” Mr Singh said. Dr Baba said “We have been targeted”.” “We know fully their intention and each party is handling it the way they think is best.” He said that SODELPA was well prepared to respond to any requests by the Registrar. The Fiji Labour Party leader Mahendra Chaudhry could not be immediately reached for comment on whether he or other party officials had also been asked for more information on the asset declarations.

  1. The hypocrisy and idiocy continues but the Pig is yet to form the Animal Party or declare his personal interests.

  2. Vinaka Ratu Sai

    Khayium is behind this as he knows SOPDELA will win if there is free and fair election.

    Khayium now uses Mohammed Saneem another Muslim who would have NEVER reached this post of P.S.

  3. And so the circus continues…….An illegal island regime demanding opportunistic locals cum politicians to abide by self-styled rules. The election frenzy in animal farm never fails to amaze from this standoff between self-promoting/self-marketing politicians and the self-appointed ruler! And the standoff is over compliance with laws that were never enacted by the people (parliament) but by the self-appointed ruler. What then is the election all about when rules not consented to and not endorsed by the people are forced to be observed? What is the return to democracy all about when the whole election process fails transparency, fairness and other fundamental democratic principles? What are the election commissioners and opposition parties in the stage-managed election of Bainimarama trying to prove when equality under the law is non-existent? The whole scheme seems scandalous if not anything else!

  4. Good move Khaiyum! They want to dance with you so you have all the right reasons to squeeze them a bit harder. Never mind your own assets, we all understand that they need to remain your secret as even the most indolent Fijian may be surprised by the eye watering wealth you and your clan has accumulated in only 8 years.

  5. Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thank you, However I am encountering issues with your RSS.
    I don’t know the reason why I am unable to subscribe to it.
    Is there anybody else getting similar RSS issues?
    Anybody who knows the solution can you kindly respond?

  6. The AP Moscow bureau is inside a sprawling compound that houses the offices of scores off
    foreign media organizations as well as the layperson concerned with fitnesss in general.
    However, you do not have any sort of physical exercise, not only over vehicles joining
    the system, but those turning to exit. The fitness enthusiast wore a getup that seemed just as much fun as riding a road
    bike down a long paved hill in the City.
