SODELPA MP Aseri Radrodro took the opportunity on Wednesday to apologise to SODELPA voters for the bickering’s happening within the party.

While responding to the President’s speech, Mr Radrodro said: “I wish to take this time to apologise to all our SODELPA voters and those who are inclined to the work we do, if they have become disillusioned and unhappy with the recent disruptions and bickering’s that have beset our party.”

He assured voters that these are extraordinary times and the party was at a juncture where their political ideologies were being tested to great lengths as they strive to survive.

“We must embrace that differences in opinions and political ideologies will arise. We must take heart that these issues can be resolved and our leaders will rise to be relevant for our people,” Mr Radrodro said.

“I personally have many discomforts over the way we have handled issues of late, and whilst I object and disagree with the manner we have handled ourselves as leaders, I remain optimistic that we are governed by a righteous God that sees all and knows all, and for that, we must always reflect on the path that we have travelled, and exercise wisdom on the path that we intend to travel. There must be no political enemies, just differences in political ideologies.”

He requested Government to review fines and fees charged by the Land Transport Authority, Fiji Police Force, Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission and other entities to reflect the struggling economic climate.

Further, Mr Radrodro urged Government to reduce the hiring of expatriates and to utilise local labour skills.

“I will ask that our Government be more creative in opening up more opportunities for our people. It is well and good that our digital platforms are widely accessible, however, Government must be courageous in supporting innovations that are adaptable to any kind of climate that we can expect,” he said.

“The onus is on our leaders to be more expansive in the way that we deal with issues that will be necessary to allow us as a people and as a nation to win in this battle against COVID-19.”

He said the pandemic had presented the opportunity to innovate the domestic market and although he had always been critical of the high debt levels, he endorsed the idea of exploring all available means to help Fiji rise above this crisis
