The Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) may not forfeit their parliamentary seats even though it has been claiming electoral fraud.

These claims have been dismissed by the Electoral Commission. The Multinational Observer Group has also issued a report which in effect gives the claims no credence.

Party insiders were reluctant to comment on the matter yesterday but it’s understood there is growing pressure within party ranks to accept the results of the election.

SODELPA will be in opposition when the new parliament convenes Parliament is required by law to convene within 14 days after the formation of Government.

Its policies have been roundly rejected as the majority of voters gave FijiFirst a massive mandate.

Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem confirmed that SODELPA agents continued scrutiny of the counting process yesterday. He denied reports that SODELPA agents had pulled out.

It was a quiet day for SODELPA yesterday with only a few party members at the Macgregor Road headquarters.

SODELPA youth leader Peter Waqavonovono later posted pictures on Facebook of leader, Ro Teimumu Kepa, in prayer with other executives at the party’s headquarters yesterday afternoon.
