SODELPA MPs defied president, Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu’s directive to reject the allowance hike for parliamentarians.

Yesterday they voted in favour of the new allowances which Parliament passed.

In his letter to all party MPs, Ratu Naiqama said: “A vote in support of increases in allowances at a time when those affected by the ravages of TC Winston are still living in tents, school children are still attending schools in makeshift leaking classrooms, the continuing relative low wage rates across the board as well as the increasing cost of living, is inappropriate.”
