SODELPA Opposition MPs  put on a brave face when they attended a caucus meeting in the Opposition Office yesterday.

They did the best they could to  show they were unaffected by a serious row over a confidential report that is critical of Opposition Leader Ro Teimumu Kepa and the Opposition Office.

But the tension showed on their faces.

The report was not discussed. Ro Teimumu told them there was no need to talk about it because it was now in the hands of the party’s management board.

The MP’s who were absent included Mosese Bulitavu who stayed  away deliberately in protest against Ro Teimumu; plus Party president Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu and Niko Nawaikula who are  overseas.

Ro Teimumu evaded the waiting media by not using the front door.

 

The MPs were asked two questions:

  • What was the meeting today about?
  • Did you discuss controversial report?

SODELPA MPs’ Response:

Viliame Gavoka
Ask Mick, I have no response lady.

 

Ro Kiniviliame Kiliraki
The meeting was about next week’s sitting, no discussion about the report.
Ratu Sela Nanovo
It was a normal caucus meeting.

 

Jiosefa Dulakiverata
It was a normal meeting, no discussion on the report.

 

Ratu Isoa Tikoca
No response.
