Convicted Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua leader, Laisenia Qarase will have little chance of running in the next election after his conviction and jail term.

This was revealed by a New Zealand academic Dr Steven Ratuva to Radio New Zealand.

Qarase was convicted on nine charges of abusing his office and failing to perform his duties and was yesterday handed a one-year sentence by the Suva High Court.

The Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua party leader had been expected to contest in the 2014 election and had told FijiLive that he would win it.

But an Auckland University political scientist, Dr Ratuva, says that isn’t likely, for two reasons.

Firstly, the Electoral Act will not allow that because if you are convicted then you will not have the privilege of parliamentary representation

Secondly, he said given his health condition as well, it may be a lot of pressure on him.

However Dr Ratuva said there is nothing stopping Qarase from remaining the SDL party leader.
