"IT'S a relationship based on trust," said SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa as her party's top guns made an appearance at the Fiji Labour Party meeting yesterday in Vatuwaqa, solidifying their coalition vows.

Ro Teimumu said while there was nothing in writing on the coalition between the two parties yet, both FLP and SODELPA had been working together on the basis of trust.

FLP leader Mahendra Chaudhry said the two parties were still working on a Memorandum of Agreement.

SODELPA deputy leader Dr Tupeni Baba said the two parties had been meeting regularly for the past two months making sure the coalition worked.

Both SODELPA and FLP have indicated they will be looking at amending the 2013 Constitution.

According to Dr Baba, there was a clause in the Constitution allowing parliament to make amendments.

Mr Chaudhry said the constitution could be changed by the people of Fiji if they wanted it.

Both parties are yet to clarify the details of their power-sharing should they win the most seats in Parliament on September 17.

Ro Teimumu said only two months remained until the election and the two parties were ensuring they carried the mandate of the people when the nation goes to the polls.
