The Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem has confirmed that he received certified copies of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) from the Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) yesterday.

The MoU was signed by the former People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Leader Lynda Tabuya and SODELPA leader Sitiveni Rabuka which was witnessed on December 9 last year.

In a media statement last week, Mr Saneem said it was necessary to verify if the Agreement purportedly merges both SODELPA and PDP and if it did so, the Act prescribed certain procedural requirements that both parties were required to follow.

He further stated that, “since the Fijian Elections Office (FEO) has not received any particulars as at the date of the press release, some deadlines as per the Act may have been exceeded.” 

Both SODELPA and PDP were given 7 days to provide the Fijian Elections Office with certified copies of the MoU.
