He adds that they will participate in parliamentary debate and continue to represent the people who voted for them.

“They was no agreement but they just came to tell me that they support me as the Prime Minister. They will continue to sit on the opposition benches as independents.”

He adds that the members of the coalition have supported his move and welcomed the meeting with the nine MPs.

Rabuka says if the nine MPs are not included in the opposition caucas meetings, then they should have a separate facility for themselves, and he will speak to the speaker about this.

The nine MPs include Aliki Bia, Mosese Bulitavu, Josaia Niudamu, Viliame Naupoto, Alipate Tuicolo, Ioane Naivalurua, Taito Rokomatu, Penioni Ravunawa, and Naisa Tuinaceva.
