Never in my wildest dream would we get a seat each: Naiqama

November 26, 2018 6:25 pm

It was never in Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu’s wildest dream that both he and his son would get a seat each in parliament.

Speaking to FBC News, Ratu Naiqama says he only thanks the man above for the blessings upon their lives.

“I just have to thank the Lord for it, never in our wildest dream, but it happened, just have to thank the Lord for it.”

Ratu Naiqama’s son, Ratu Atonio Lalabalavu says even though they are on the Opposition side, it’s unreal that a father and son have both made it into parliament.

“Last few months have been hectic with campaigning, but people have spoken, not only 1 but 2 of us are in and it’s a huge milestone. It’s unreal, I can’t say much because this is the first time it’s happened. I’ll just treat him like my father, like at home and mentor as well.”

After the election, Ratu Atonio bagged more votes than his father securing 5, 016 votes while Ratu Naiqama managed to get 2, 165 votes.
