Fiji to get a coalition government, Members of Parliament named

0
473

Four political parties will represent the Fijian voters in Parliament for the next four years after the counting of votes was completed Sunday afternoon.

No party has an absolute majority to claim victory in the 2022 General Election, which also means that a coalition is required as it stands.

The current arrangements based on the 470,584 votes cast has FijiFirst 26 seats, The Peoples Alliance  21, the National Federation Party- five and SODELA – three.

The ruling FijiFirst party failed to secure a majority of seats to rule in parliament.

This is calculated on the 470,584 votes that were cast in the election with 3326 invalid votes.

The People’s Alliance Party – led by Sitiveni Rabuka – and the National Federation Party – led by Biman Prasad – formed a pre-election coalition before the election which means the Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) will decide who forms the next government in Fiji.

The official handover by the Supervisor of Elections, Mohammed Saneem to the Electoral commission takes place at 4pm.

The following are candidates amongst the 55 who will be the next Members of Parliament.
