Top chiefs in SODELPA line-up
Ratu Suliano, Ratu Naiqama get the green light
Two high chiefs have been included in the Social Democratic Liberal Party’s line-up for the September 17 poll.
Namosi chief Ratu Suliano Matanitobua and Tui Cakau Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu are two of the party’s final candidates.
This was confirmed yesterday by the party’s vice-president, Silivenusi Waqausa.
“We are meeting with the candidates just to congratulate them for their effort,” Mr Waqausa said.
He said the party had already met with 20 of the final candidates and was supposed to have met with eleven others but only six turned up. Mr Waqausa said the party officials could not meet all the candidates at once because they were living at different locations in Fiji while some had commitments.
The briefing yesterday was a closed meeting.
