Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says MPs need to speak on facts in Parliament.
This as he stated that comments made by Opposition members about FijiFirst winning by 147 votes is not correct.
Sayed-Khaiyum says opposition members are misinforming the public as the FijiFirst won by a majority.
“Let me remind those on the opposite side, FijiFirst has a majority of 50.02 percent of the votes, SODELPA has 39.85, NFP with only 7.38 percent that is a huge difference.”
Sayed-Khaiyum says FijiFirst has 13, 000 more votes than SODELPA and NFP combined.
“SODELPA should remember madam speaker the 273,000 rejected them approximately 420,000 voters rejected NFP and told them that they are not fit for parliament.”
While making his maiden speech, an emotional Sayed-Khaiyum shared how his wife stood by him and his family as they absorbed all the racial and religious slurs made against them.
“Madam Speaker she was and is a wonderful wife, partner, friend and companion.”
Sayed-Khaiyum stated that his parents are also ordinary people but for them to be included in social media abuse is unacceptable.
