No confidence vote thrown out
February 10, 2016 5:50 am
Two votes of no confidence were submitted in parliament late yesterday.
FBC News has confirmed the Opposition filed one Motion against the Speaker Dr. Jiko Luveni and another against the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama.
The motion for a Vote of No Confidence was brought against the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama; it was submitted to the Office of the Speaker by Opposition Leader Ro Teimumu Kepa.
However, the motion was later withdrawn by SODELPA member Semesa Karavaki, before it could come to a debate.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says these are the attempts by SODELPA and the Opposition leader to get into government.
“We were actually looking forward for them to bring the motion forward so that we can have it debated today in parliament. So I can show in Fiji where there is women is suppose to be really at. Do you think she can become Prime Minister of Fiji?”
FBC News has confirmed that a second no confidence motion was filed late yesterday against the Speaker of the House.
The Opposition Office in the parliament complex told FBC News nothing has been tabled.
However, the Prime Minister reveals that the motion was kicked out after the government side of the House identified technical blunders.
Repeated attempts to get comments from SODELPA MPs and Opposition leader Ro Teimumu Kepa were futile.
