Only SODELPA President, Party Leader, GS Can Issue Media Statements

UPDATE: SODELPA has issued an immediate-effect statement saying that all media statements can only be released by its president, leader and general-secretary.

Signed by its general-secretary, Pio Tabaiwalu, the statement was made following SODELPA’s management board meeting on Tuesday night.

The statement said: “Personal articles, opinions, statements made by Party members are the prerogative of party members however; they shall not in any way contradict the Party’s policies and stated positions, or cast disrepute to the Party.

“Grievances by any Party members will need to follow the due process as outlined in the Party constitution and shall be made formally to the General Secretary in accordance with relevant section of the Party Constitution

“Any member found in breach of the above guidelines will be subject to the disciplinary procedures of the Party.”

The statement comes after some party MPs have publicly aired their grievances about how the party, in particular the Opposition Office is being run.

The Management Board has also made appointments to the various committees within the party that are expected to generate a new direction for the party as it steps up its attention towards the 2018 General Elections, or before.

“These Committee appointments are in line with the amendments in the party constitution recently adopted by the Party.

Mr Tabaiwalu also thanked all members of the Party and the people of Fiji including the media fraternities’ appreciation for all the support rendered to the party.
