SODELPA charges levy

SODELPA has revealed it is charging a $3000 refundable levy from those who have applied to be a candidate for the party.

This was confirmed by party leader Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa in an interview yesterday.

"The levy that each candidate is to pay is $3000. It goes towards the workings of the party, that is the administration and operation of the office," Ro Teimumu said.

"It pays for the office rental, administration and operation of our office on Denison Rd and also any other running cost that we have."

Ro Teimumu said while many applications had come in, those applicants who won't be nominated would have their levy refunded.

"Some applicants have applied but have not paid the levy. It's (levy) coming in very slowly — some have already paid but we cannot divulge the information to you."

She said those applicants who had submitted their applications together with the levy would be given serious consideration.

The party also confirmed it would contest all 50 seats in the September 17 General Election.

Ro Teimumu said it was only wise to contest all the seats given the fact that the election would have a one-constituency system.
