BABAThe Social Democratic and Liberal Party has made it’s stand clear that it will re-instate the itaukei and multi ethnic based scholarship programmes if it forms the next government after the elections.

When SODELPA was questioned on why it wants to bring back the race based scholarships, senior party official, Doctor Tupeni Baba said SODELPA will not change this stand.

Doctor Baba said although SODELPA has decided to contest the elections under the 2013 constitution, the party does not accept the new scholarship and student loan schemes brought in as they have not been approved by an elected parliament. 

Doctor Baba said it does not matter that the previous scholarship programme which SODELPA wants to bring back was race based.

It appears that SODELPA also prefers and wants to encourage race based voting, if so they should be registered under the name : “Social Destructive and Liability Party”
