THE Social Democratic and Liberal Party says they will not comment on whether rugby legend Waisale Serevi applied to become a candidate for the party.
Serevi's name was on a speculation list which went viral online this week amid the names of other candidates.
Party leader Ro Teimumu Kepa said she would not comment on the matter at this stage.
"I can truthfully sayâ€¦ oh no, I better not comment on the matter because people will be asking me later," Ro Teimumu said.
Serevi also denied applying.
"I'm afraid there is some sort of misunderstanding.
"Reports of my candidacy are greatly exaggerated," he said in an email to this newspaper.
He said he was flattered that people would consider him worthy of the 2014 General Election.
"I am a man of rugby busy building my business in the United States.
"I am pleased to report that the business is expanding rapidly and that am I travelling far and wide in support.
"This is and will remain my singular focus for the foreseeable future."
