SODELPA Drama Takes New Turn In Court
Ratu Epenisa Cakobau.

SODELPA’s attempt to strike out a motion challenging the appoint­ment of Ratu Epenisa Cakobau as party president was declined by the High Court in Lautoka yesterday.

High court judge Justice Anare Tui­levuka had ordered that the Registrar of Political Parties be made a party in the case.

The case was filed by Taitusi Kata who identifies himself as the presi­dent of SODELPA’s urban constitu­ency for Ba, Tavua and Vatukoula.

Mr Kata had filed the case in court after Ratu Epenisa was appointed president of the party and Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu was ousted.

Mr Kata claimed that Ratu Epenisa was a fraudulent president and the then general secretary Emele Duitu­turaga did not have the powers to ap­point him.

SODELPA has also been ordered to pay $1800 in court costs.
