Former Prime Minister, Laisenia Qarase
“We are aiming to win at least 26 seats in Parliament if we get 52 percent of the total votes cast in the 17th September general election.”
That was revealed by the former Prime Minister, Laisenia Qarase to more than 60 people at a political party campaign by the Social Democratic Liberal Party in Nadera.
Qarase told the supporters that it is important that SODELPA wins the 52 percent of the votes, not only from the I‑Taukei but also from the non‑itaukei voters because the party can lead the country.
He said SODELPA can then invite other parties for a coalition.
Former Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase who is ineligible to contest the September election says the people’s choice is paramount in this upcoming election.
Qarase is now actively campaigning for SODELPA and is appearing in a number of campaign meetings.
Meanwhile SODELPA leader, Ro Teimumu Kepa has already said that they will form a coalition with Fiji Labour party and other political parties.
