Despite lifting of suspension, Fiji's Sodelpa has work cut out

From , 6:00 am on 1 July 2020

Fiji's main opposition party can now operate and function as a political party.

This follows the lifting of the suspension of the Social Democratic Liberal Party or Sodelpa by the Elections Office in Suva this week.

Just over a month ago the party was suspended for breaching political rules and the constitution.

It was given 60 days to remedy the breaches or face deregistration.

But as Christine Rovoi reports, a rift remains between the feuding factions and threatens to further split the party.
