Fiji’s Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) has appointed Lenaitasi Duru as its new General Secretary and Registered Officer of the Party.
He succeeds Emele Duituturaga who resigned a month ago.
Duru was appointed as Assistant General Secretary in late June 2020 together with his predecessor, Duituturaga.
“Other than his qualifications, which are quite impressive, and work experience, Mr. Duru brings in a strong sense of continuity and stability to the Party, having served as Assistant General Secretary for the last nine months,” Party Leader Viliame Gavoka said.
Duru holds a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of the South Pacific together with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Business Administration in General Management, Post Graduate Certificate in Business Administration in Human Resources Management and Bachelor of Commerce International Business & Marketing/Agricultural Business and Economics.
Duru’s appointment is effective from today. The SODELPA Board has also appointed Filipe Qio as Assistant General Secretary.
