All members of parliament will need to focus on working together to find solutions for issues that matter the most, says Deputy Prime Minister Manoa Kamikamica.

He made these comments while welcoming the decision of a few Opposition MPs following FijiFirst’s deregistration.

Kamikamica adds that while more than 40 percent of Fiji citizens voted for FijiFirst, it is unfortunate that they have chosen to walk away from that commitment to voters.

However, he acknowledges that Fiji is now in a new environment and emphasizes that there are still a number of national concerns that need urgent attention.

“For me, it’s more about how we can work together with the independence or some people that are going to be FijiFirst and just try to move the country ahead. There are still some big problems that we still have, and now is an opportunity to work together.”

Kamikamica believes that opposition MPs are now free from external control and can independently decide whom to support.

He also confirms that his relationship with coalition partners remains stable.
