Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says having an opposition in parliament will not be a problem for him and his party as it is part of democracy. Speaking on FBC TV’s 4 The Record Show last night, the FijiFirst leader was confident, his party will win the upcoming elections. Bainimarama was asked if will be able to deal with an opposition team given that he has been ruling the country without any opposition for eight years now. He replied that if the opposition goes against their plans to continue to upgrade and develop the country, then the opposition itself will have to face the public in Fiji.“That should not be a problem because it’s part of the parliamentary process. It’s democracy that we have been craving for and that is also a reason a lot of people in Fiji don’t want this election. They want a strong decisive leader. Have a look at the other political parties, look at their leadership.”Fiji will have a 50 member parliament after the elections, 3 more seating’s than the previous ones.

  1. I am glad that our country is finally led by someone who is a true democrat with a deep experience in and understanding of parliamentary processes. And in case the opposition angers our great leaders can always ask the RFMF to help to calm things down. Our constitution ensures that this is all covered.

  2. Yeah right: the one person who has ruled as dictator for 8 years without any opposition now says he sees an opposition in parliament as no problem.

  3. Again he opens his mouth. And again we witness the dictator’s mental state of confusion. What a moron? Does he really understand what he is saying? He deserves his own brand of followers who are themselves dumb and confused. Yes,
