Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama is well known for getting what he wants but unfortunately this failed when he was not able to change the national flag.
This was stressed by Leader of Opposition and SODELPA Candidate Ro Teimumu Kepa during a campaign meeting at Matanagata Village in Vatukoula last night.
Ro Teimumu acknowledged former SODELPA Youth Leader Pita Waqavonovono and former SODELPA Candidate Mick Beddoes saying that they were the reason behind the rejection of the proposal.
Ro Teimumu says that she is still proud of the support from the two former SODELPA members.
The Leader of Opposition says that Waqavonovono and Beddoes were instrumental in collecting signatures to stop the Prime Minister from bidding for a new flag.
Meanwhile Ro Teimumu has stressed that other small parties in this general elections do have people who have the knowledge and can carry out the job however the votes could be wasted since they are small parties.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
