Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka after the COC meeting.
Securing consensus during a Constitutional Offices Commission meeting is not an issue, says Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka.
He says that if there is no consensus, the commissioners can vote.
Earlier today, the Leader of Opposition Voreqe Bainimarama and his nominee, Tupou Draunidalo stomped out of the meeting.

“We’ve just completed the scheduled meeting and the resolutions will be taken through the proper channels for further action and then we will be able to put a release.”
