November 26, 2018 3:53 am
After thirty-one years, SODELPA Leader, Sitiveni Rabuka was able to re-enter the same parliament room he took over in 1987 but this time as an Opposition leader.
Rabuka was a proud man after the first parliament sitting this morning and he’s happy to be given a chance to be in parliament again despite this being through a democratic manner.
For Rabuka it was like a walk down memory lane after staging Fiji’s first ever coup in the same parliament room in 1987.
“It’s a different house but very fond memories and a lot of respect”.
On May 14th 1987, Rabuka and his man stormed into the same parliament chamber and took over the government at that time.
After all that transpired, Rabuka was a happy man today, after attending to his first parliament sitting after 31 years.
“I am honoured to be elected as leader of the opposition and I have a grand team behind me and we can do justice to the role of the Opposition”
Rabuka says he is looking forward to debate on policies against the current government.
