Party support solid, intact

DIVISION within the Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) is something that cannot be denied, says party president Ro Filipe Tuisawau.

Ro Filipe said the good thing was those creating divisions within the party represented an insignificant number.

“The good thing is that these numbers are insignificant and include the usual disagreements which are manageable.

“Some emanate from oversized egos and self-importance — part of human nature, and again, I believe this is manageable and not a threat to our existence because the core SODELPA support remains solid and intact despite the best efforts of those who seek to destroy it, in particular biased and compromised media and reporters, and the moles,” he claimed.

Ro Filipe said if the country was to believe the negative coverage about SODELPA fed by disloyal moles since 2013, then SODELPA would not have taken six parliamentary seats from FijiFirst in the 2018 General Election.

“In a political party, loyalty is very important for unity.

“People have resigned from FijiFirst because of disagreements with the PM and Minister for Economy,” he claimed.

“I am also encouraging those in SODELPA who do not agree with the choice of the members of the party to resign.

“That will be for the good of our members and SODELPA as a whole.”
