SODELPA: Register and vote

ROSI DOVIVERATA
SUVA

Register and vote because this is your civic duty, says Social Democratic Liberal Party leader, Ro Teimumu Kepa.
She made the call to all Fijians 18 years and over after data gathered by the party revealed that many Fijians have yet to register and others had misplaced their voter identification cards.
“We hope that people who are not registered that even though they do not vote for SODELPA, it is their civic duty to pick who they want in Government,” Ro Teimumu said.
“But if they do not make use of this opportunity, then there is no point in complaining afterwards that this is not the party we want in Government – and we know it has happened in the past.”
Ro Teimumu said they had raised their concerns with the Supervisor of Elections who said they would be sending out another voter registration drive this month.
Voter registration for the 2014 general election will cease on August 4 –when the elections writ will be issued.
Ro Teimumu also called on SODELPA officials and members working from constituency through to its sub-branches to ensure that any publication is first approved from the party headquarters.
The issue was raised during the party’s central constituency annual general meeting last Friday where leaflets depicting the party’s symbol were distributed.
Ro Teimumu said: “We need to ensure there are guidelines not only because of the party’s constitution, but also because of the decrees that are there that we need to abide by. So we are working within these strict guidelines so whatever publication is made, has the approval and authorisation from the party headquarters.”
When asked about the possible split in iTaukei votes with the registered FijiFirst party, Ro Teimumu said SODELPA was sure of their support base.
“With the SODELPA party, we know our support base is the indigenous Fijian voters and we also know that the FijiFirst will get some of the indigenous votes.
“And with other parties that are there, depending on how well they market themselves to the voter population in providing a manifesto that will be of interest to them and to have their families well provided for,” she said.

  1. THE National Employment Centre has so far registered an accumulative total of 83,000 unemployed people in the country.

    Centre director Viliame Cagilaba said the figure was inclusive of the legal employment age from 15 years and above.

    Mr Cagilaba said of the total of unemployed registrations they received, more than 5000 were from youths.

    He said 12,000 graduates had also registered with the centre in search of job opportunities.

    “We have identified from NEC that the problem has nothing to do with the lack of job opportunities,” he said.

    “The job opportunities are out there but we do not have suitable qualification that is needed from the employer.

    “In this light we also feel that there is a need to revise our education system because it has been outdated.”

    He said Fiji’s school curriculum needed to be tuned to bring out employees qualified to fit the demand from the labour market.

    “There is no co-ordination between the supply and the demand in our labour market because the education system does not co-ordinate with the demand from the labour market.

    “Most of our youths prefer to go for white collar jobs and they are never told that there are also opportunities in other labour markets.

    “Most of our clients out of the 12,000 are school dropouts but government’s free education initiative is expected to address this issue.”

    Mr Cagilaba said when considering the issue of unemployment one needed to be specific because most people in rural areas had their own forms of self-employment.
