SOCIAL Democratic Liberal Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa believes her party’s fight to reclaim Fiji is not in vain as she will lead 18 members of parliament to make up the opposition in parliament.
Ro Teimumu said after eight years, Fiji and the Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama would have opposition.
She said the return of Fiji to democracy was the “first test of transparency and accountability” for Mr Bainimarama.
“That said, SODELPA will take up its position in the opposition and make sure that the government of the day no longer avoids being accountable to the people as they have done for the last eight years,” she said.
Ro Teimumu thanked the 139,857 people who voted for them.
“To all the good citizens of Fiji, especially all of you who exercised your right to vote and stayed true to your courage and moral integrity by voting in support of the opposition parties and especially SODELPA, I thank you most sincerely on behalf of all the candidates and officials of SODELPA.”
