SODELPA parliamentarian Viliame Gavoka has made it clear that SODELPA will bring back the Great Council of Chiefs if it wins the 2018 general elections.

While speaking on the President’s speech in parliament, Gavoka said SODELPA does not know why the GCC was scrapped.

SODELPA also wants the Chairman of iTaukei Land Trust Board to be nominated by the GCC.

Gavoka says although President Jioji Konrote has told them not to dwell on ethnicity, SODELPA stresses that it is not about ethnicity but equality.

He then went on to say that the iTaukei need to be empowered economically as done by Laisenia Qarase under the Blueprint for the iTaukei.

Gavoka stresses that the returns from the qoliqoli should go directly to the iTaukei owners.

He also says that SODELPA wants many aspects of the constitution repealed.
