When asked by FBC News about Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka’s hint at possibly forming a government of national unity, Prasad says he has not discussed the matter with Rabuka, as his priority remains the upcoming budget.

“Right now, my focus is really on the budget. We’ve had no discussion with the Prime Minister about what he’s said in the media.”
