Multiracial party

WHILE SODELPA has always focused on its indigenous Fijian base for support, the party says it will also focus on other ethnicities, including Fijians of Indian descent, as it prepares for the September 17 general election.

Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa said they had also received applications from various Fijians of Indian descent wanting to run under the party banner.

“At the same time we are looking at other communities because our focus is the indigenous Fijians base but we are looking at other communities and ethnicities because we have spoken about a coalition after the general election, that is probably where we will be getting our wider distribution,” said Ro Teimumu yesterday.

“We have got a lot of good Indian applicants. If only we could have more of the other ethnicities as well.”

She said while applications have been coming in, they were only looking at 30 candidates.

“We are not looking at the 50 candidates straight away, we are probably looking at the first 30.

“It’s a challenge because we have so many good candidates that we would like to consider them all. But we are not in the position because we only have the 50 seats.”

She said the party was only looking at applicants who had the characteristics of becoming good ministers.

Ro Teimumu said the 30 names would be announced by early May.

  1. “We have got a lot of good Indian applicants. If only we could have more of the other ethnicities as well.”

    Why is it some get the feeling the term “as well” was reluctantly used in place of “instead”

  2. Fijians of Indian decent in SODELPA!!! Is this a joke???
    What or which Fijian of Indian decent would be willing to sell the dignity that FB has offered him and his future generations for free??? Who’s the idiot that will want to return to be seen as 2nd class citizens of this country???

  3. @ Red. Yes you true bro.

    As for NFP and FLP they have always been Indian dominated while SODELPA iTaukei dominated.They cannot work together and move Fiji forward together. When one of these parties wins a majority the other will have to be their lapdog.

    With FB’s Fiji First all races are equal and everyone’s interests important and FAIRLY looked after.

    Those against FB only want FB out but offer very little for Fiji. Everyone must read their manifestos – maybe it’s a copy and paste from most of FB’s one with a little addition. These antis have no vision! They have no will. They were given an opportunity to lead Fiji before but they just blew it. So no one must believe them again.

    It’s time for a real change and FB has proved that he can deliver.

  4. The only thing that FB has proved in the last 8 years is that he is liar, corrupted, and abuser of authority who thrives in squandering public fund as if it was his private fund.

  5. Fiji Veteran
    Yes they blew cause some one was a thief and he committed treason is a liar and a thief now pretending to be a law abiding leader

  6. Agree with fiji veteran . How can a rat like SODELPA work alongside its counterparts . FIJIANS OF INDIAN ORIGIN – are they second class citizens of Fiji . The very root of discrimination , racial divide , disharmony that FB is trying to eradicate but the UDP in particular the SODOMY party leader is trying to champion . Whom you trying to fool . SODELPA must exept that all Fiji citizens are fijians and FIJI is HOME . Seems old political dogs like the leader cannot swallow FB s records and achievements . Get down from your high horse and try to walk the talk . Vinaka beka vei Ratu Sai me sa vata mada e liu na kora kei na Kota Mai gusumu ni bera ni raica na ka Dina . Kua so na yalo ca tiko .

  7. These include the basic rules of volleyball you have to learn one which just participate in this kind of sport.
    The students go for to participate in in a variety of sports like
    football, basketball, volleyball, cricket, badminton, handball, kho-kho, skating, judo karate and athletics.
    Students should jot down their report on five commonalities to share with all the class.
