Vijay Singh:  Let Commission Do Its Job
SODELPA vice-president Vijay Singh

SODELPA vice-president Vijay Singh says he will respect the decision of the Supervisor of Elections regarding his case.

Mohammed Saneem had confirmed that Mr Singh had breached the Political Parties Decree and had referred him to the Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC). It is alleged that Mr Singh had not officially resigned from the now suspended People’s Democratic Party (PDP) when he was elected as SODELPA vice-president on December 9, last year.

Mr Singh told the Fiji Sun: “If Saneem thinks he has correctly interpreted the Political Parties Decree, and he has referred it to FICAC, so let FICAC do its job.”

He declined to make any further comment on the matter.

Mr Saneem said that under the law a person could not be a member of more than one political party, which contravened section 15 of the Political Parties Act.

SODELPA general secretary Adi Litia Qionibaravi said she could not comment, because she had not seen the transcript of the interview with Mr Saneem.
