Former Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka has quit from the Social Democratic Liberal Party.
The Fiji Sun reported Rabuka, will not be contesting the 2014 general elections as a SODELPA candidate.
Rabuka says the SODELPA Youth Council and Women’s wing objected to his membership with the Party.
He was being lined-up by supporters within the SODELPA to be the deputy leader, but there was a strong backlash by opponents within the party.
A statement from SODELPA issued yesterday says Rabuka will not participate in the party under any official capacity.
However, it said Rabuka remained a party member and staunch SODELPA supporter.
The party wished Rabuka every success in his future public and private endeavours.
Rabuka says he will wait for a while until; he makes a decision on his next political move.
