The Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua party has finally broken its silence over the controversial submissions to the Constitutional Commission.
Speaking exclusively to FBC News, SDL Media Liaison Officer – Mesake Koroi confirms the party is yet to make its submission.
He adds the document that was handed to the Commission last week came from a handful of supporters.
The SDL has denied that Solomoni Naivalu led a team to the Constitutional hearing.
“It’s unfortunate that people are reading into it as if it’s the SDL party’s official submission. I can assure you that it is not the case. But that does not mean to say that SDL supporters when they make their submissions, it is part of SDL’s submission. They are free to say what they want in their own submissions. I can assure you that the SDL party’s submission is still being worked at.”
Apparently, Naivalu was only present at the session where the submissions – which have caused wide spread controversy – were presented by SDL supporters.
