SODELPA'S candidate for the Tamavua/Cunningham sub-constituency Semesa Karavaki believes Fiji needs reformers and not politicians.
Mr Karavaki, in his political campaign where he met residents of Tamavua-i-Cake Village on Thursday night, said the country needed people who were willing to commit the nation to one true God and also who could perform reforms, which would benefit Fijians and their future generation.
Speaking in the iTaukei language, Mr Karavaki said SODELPA stood committed in seeing that reforms would be in place to help Fijians and their families.
He referred to the Bible on several occasions where he made references to how the Israelites needed someone to help them out of their misery and that God had sent reformers and not politicians. Mr Karavaki said SODELPA would also do the same, which was to enter parliament and the idea of bringing about change by providing reforms in all aspects of life.
He said Fijians had seen better days and that the country was suffering with indigenous Fijians further suppressed.
He said SODELPA remained steadfast on the direction that would enhance the livelihood of every individual and that God should always remain first in all critical decisions and not any political party or any human being for that matter.
Mr Karavaki worked as a civil servant for the past 29 years and was also a Supervisor of Election.
He said there was a need to uphold God's justice and values, and to embrace respect for the rule of law and ensure fundamental human rights and social justice and equal opportunities for all.
