Anine-mem­ber task force team has been set up by the So­cial Demo­cratic Lib­eral Party (in sus­pen­sion) vice pres­i­dent Vi­jay Singh to look into the party af­fairs amid its 60 days sus­pen­sion.

Speak­ing from Syd­ney, Mr Singh said the party (in sus­pen­sion) was work­ing hard to rec­tify the breaches out­lined by the Reg­is­trar of Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties Mo­hammed Sa­neem on May 25.

Mr Sa­neem had sus­pended SODELPA for 60 days for fail­ure to com­ply with its own con­sti­tu­tion and the Po­lit­i­cal Par­ties Act.

This was af­ter the party or­gan­ised two sep­a­rate meet­ings last month which was a breach of their con­sti­tu­tion.

Mr Sa­neem had re­jected both ap­pli­ca­tions filed by Emele Duitu­turaga and Adi Li­tia Qion­i­bar­avi from the two fac­tions of the sus­pended party.

On Mon­day, Mr Sa­neem said the sus­pended party was work­ing on rec­ti­fy­ing the breaches.

As the Po­lit­i­cal Party Reg­is­trar, he fa­cil­i­tated here pos­si­ble in ac­cor­dance with the law.

Most of the work is be­ing car­ried out by party of­fi­cials.

Mr Singh said the task force had been work­ing hard vis­it­ing the var­i­ous con­stituen­cies to rem­edy the breaches be­fore the 60 days is over.

“Once we have sorted all that needs to be sorted, we will be able to come back on track.”

Over the weekend, sus­pended party MP Ro Tei­mumu Kepa posted on her so­cial me­dia chan­nels af­ter meet­ing with the Tui Cakau, Ratu Naiqama Lal­a­bal­avu and Ratu Epenisa Cakobau of the Kubuna con­fed­er­acy.

She also held meet­ings with mem­bers of the Rewa con­stituency at Bure­basaga vil­lage in Rewa.

Other SODELPA (in sus­pen­sion) MPs are do­ing the same at their var­i­ous con­stituen­cies.
