DEPUTY LEADER SAGA

Fiji Sun - - Nation -

SODELPA party leader Si­tiveni Rabuka yes­ter­day is­sued an­other state­ment on the deputy leader con­fu­sion. Prob­a­bly not sat­is­fied with what has been re­leased to the me­dia so far, he made it clear that party pres­i­dent Ratu Naiqama Lal­a­bal­avu has the fi­nal say. But that’s got mem­bers talk­ing again. Some­one asked: “Is the po­si­tion of deputy leader sup­posed to be ad­ver­tised?” At the Nawanawa, Nadera spe­cial gen­eral meet­ing on Septem­ber 1, the party agreed that Ratu Naiqama will ap­point an act­ing deputy leader for seven days be­fore a sub­stan­tive holder is ap­pointed through the process in place. This has not hap­pened yet. The next ques­tion: Can he ap­point him­self act­ing deputy leader while the party calls for ap­pli­ca­tions for the post? Some mem­bers are also still wait­ing for the min­utes of the Nawanawa meet­ing be­cause res­o­lu­tions ap­proved there were rushed through. The next cou­ple of weeks will be in­ter­est­ing.
