'Respond to the chapters'

SODELPA says its general secretary Pio Tabaiwalu and candidate applicant Niko Nawaikula have publicly quoted the differences in the protection accorded to Fijian native land prior to the issuance of the government's various land use decrees and it's Constitution.

This was the response by the party's director communications, Jese Sikivou, following allegations made by FijiFirst leader and Prime Minister Rear Admiral (Ret) Voreqe Bainimarama that SODELPA wanted to go back to the unequal distribution of land lease money.

"Instead of responding to the points raised by these two representatives, Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama merely spout unsubstantiated and unfounded generalisations," Mr Sikivou said.

"SODELPA is requesting that he respond to the chapters and clauses to which we refer."

Rear Admiral (Ret) Bainimarama said the government had introduced land reforms that gave the iTaukei unprecedented protection, security and deterrence.

"These are, of course, opposed by parties such as SODELPA who want to go back to the unfair and elite systems, which only served the few.

"FijiFirst, of course, will ensure that all iTaukei people, chief or commoner will get treated fairly and equally."
