SODELPA youths seem to have given up their battle against the party’s annual general meeting being held in Savusavu.

After his re-election as president of the Youth Wing yesterday, Jope Koroisavou, said they would be talking about what they learned from 2018 General Election in a post-election retreat in Savusavu.

He had earlier sent a petition to party HQ asking why the AGM was shifted to Savusavu when most members were in Viti Levu.

The issue was one of several he raised in the petition, which sparked a heated email exchange between MP Mosese Bulitavu and unsuccessful candidate and party founding member Mere Samisoni.

SODELPA Youth and Sports spokesperson MP Simione Rasova spoke on the theme ‘Youth Participation is Essential For A Healthy Democracy’.

“Party leadership and youth time achievements of our own MP’s should inspire our young members to seek to rise higher in life and make meaningful contributions to the party and in the process of national development or whatever noble vocations you may choose to excel, in life,” he said.

Mr Rasova encouraged SODELPA youths to reach out to communities in fighting for what they believe in.

“Advocacy involves exhausting the processes at stake which requires a leader to be patient, strategic and well informed of the processes in a holistic context,” said Mr Rasova.

“I have given you more than the key to the treasure box- You do your part outside and that will continue to give me the inspiration in my capacity as the Assistant Shadow Minister for Youth and Sports to do my part in the Parliament.”

Mr Koroisavou thanked the members for re-electing him.

He said he hoped to steer its members into the direction of winning the 2022 General Election.

“Lessons have been learned from the last 2014 and 2018 campaign. Now we are going right into strategizing our youth activities to be tailor made into our objective which is to win the 2022 General Election,” said Mr Koroisavou.

“Our activities will be tailor made into creating platforms, sharing awareness and informing the youth out there especially the new voters of the great responsibility they have in deciding who will be the next government in 2022,” said Mr Koroisavou.

“And giving them the space and support to be able to actively participate in the political process of our nation.”
