Update: 7:24PM FIJI has no government in place as it awaits the President's decision on his next course of action, said Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama in a televised address to the nation moments ago.
He said the Fiji Court of Appeal's declarations meant that "we effectively do not now have a prime minister or any ministers of the State; in other words we do not have government in place".
The former interim prime minister said the country now had to wait for the President to decide on his next course of action.
"I want to assure you all that I, as Commander of the RFMF, together with all the security forces, shall ensure that there will be no disruption to law and order," he said.
"His Excelllency shall inform us of his decision soon."
