Critical meeting for party

Nasik Swami

THE Social Democratic Liberal Party will enact policies to convert designated mangrove areas into marine reserves and sanctuary if it wins the general election and comes into power.

"This is critical for my province of Rewa, which has seen a steady decline in mangroves," said SODELPA leader Ro Teimumu Kepa.

"Mangroves are critical for marine life and the sustainability of marine ecosystems and an effective barrier to the effects of climate change. It is also a source of food for hundreds of people."

Ro Teimumu said this while highlighting to the party's members at their annual general meeting on what the party had in plan if it came into power.

She said the meeting was critical for SODELPA.

She said when the party's manifesto was released, the country would learn about what it was offering the poor and needy to ease their burdens, improve services and provide employment.
