Beddoes for SODELPA

Nasik Swami
Friday, June 27, 2014

former president of the defunct United People's Party and opposition leader Mick Beddoes has called on all former party members and supporters to join him and others in SODELPA and help restore democracy in Fiji.

Mr Beddoes, who has also been announced a provisional candidate for SODELPA, said he had waited until now to make this appeal because he wanted to give his former members and supporters enough time to make their own decisions on which of the opposition parties they wished to join following the winding up of the United Peoples Party in October last year.

He revealed at the time of the winding up, he had thanked party supporters for their allegiance and loyalty.

"Giving them time to decide for themselves who they would support in 2014 was important. There has been an eight-year lapse in political activity," Mr Beddoes said.

He said many former members and supporters had relocated, migrated or passed on.

Meanwhile, the vocal politician further revealed he was in the final stage of planning and budgeting for his campaign, which he would be launching shortly.

His first round of meetings would cover Vatukoula, Tavua, Ba, Lautoka, Nadi, Kulukulu, Nadroga, Pacific Harbour, Navua, Vesari, Lami, Suva, Nasinu, Nausori, Levuka, Taveuni, Kioa, Rabi, Buca Bay, Kasavu, Savusavu, Wainunu in Bua and Labasa.
