Fiji’s deputy Prime Minister Professor Biman Prasad says the Prime Minister, has certain powers, and the government is not operating as a different party but as a coalition.

Prasad made this comment when asked about the recent developments in the coalition government with the dismissal of Aseri Radrodro.

The Deputy PM said contrary to all the rumours, the coalition government is strong as they have achieved a lot in the past year.

He said the coalition has lots of things to accomplish in the next two to three years.

“Well, I do not know who is saying what, but as far as I’m concerned, the coalition is focused on delivering for the people of Fiji, and whatever issues arise within the coalition will be resolved amicably.”

Prasad said when the coalition government was formed, they did not function as their own parties but as one government.

As far as the NFP is concerned, when the coalition was formed, it was agreed that Sitiveni Rabuka would hold the position of Prime Minister, said Prasad.

Prasad assured that the issue would be resolved.
