MACUATA remains an uphill battle for SODELPA with majority of votes cast in 2014 gone to the ruling FijiFirst Government, says party leader Sitiveni Rabuka.
Speaking to party supporters in Labasa on Wednesday night, Mr Rabuka said SODELPA won 9317 votes or 25 per cent in 2014 compared with the 23,029 votes or 63 per cent for the FijiFirst party.
“So Macuata is an uphill battle for us, but we remain positive and this is why it is important to register and vote on election day as your votes will decide the next government,” he said.
“SODELPA is relatively new, but our experience in government is the same with the FijiFirst party.
“We were also in office for almost the same number of years with the administration government in 2002.”
Mr Rabuka said out of the 42,160 votes cast in 2014, 18,013 were iTaukei while 24,147 were Fijians of Indian descent.
“We have a very good team in Macuata and our party will do the best for all Fijians,” he said.
“We will do better than this Government.”
