Preparations have started for a Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) convention next month in the United States.

This was confirmed by a member of SODELPA organising committee in the US, Vasiti Ritova, through a video posted on YouTube.

The convention is to be held on April 8 at the Sheraton Hotel in Petaluma, Sonoma County, California.

SODELPA leader Sitiveni Rabuka said: “And we take advantage of the gathering because among them will be those who are not supporters yet.

“From what we say to them, it may swing them towards us. And I expect it to be about the same as I did when I went to Australia.”

Former Suva journalist Ms Ritova said in the video that the team had worked hard in the last two months to identify critical issues.

“Those critical issues will be discussed so that we can identify our people who spent their time, resources, energy and collected the manpower to identify the critical issues,” she said.

“The working group have come up with a robust line up of speakers and we are very excited about the convention happening next month.”

Mr Rabuka has confirmed that the Party had received 111 candidate applications so far and the selection process would start soon. The candidates will be named in June.
