Two leading Trade Unionists have denied they are in line for Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) tickets in the 2018 General Election.

Fiji Trades Union Congress president Daniel Urai and national secretary Felix Anthony have categorically denied that they are planning to stand in the elections.

The two were responding to reports that they could join former People’s Democratic Party colleague Lynda Tabuya in the SODELPA camp.

“I am a trade unionist and cannot become a politician under the present law,” Mr Urai said.

“As such I won’t be applying to stand in the general election,” he said.

Mr Anthony also denied the report.

“I have not applied for any SODELPA ticket and have no intention in contesting the general election,” Mr Anthony said.
