FIJIFIRST leader Voreqe Bainimarama will be sworn in as the Fijian Prime Minister, serving his second term for another four years.

Mr Bainimarama stays after he and his party won the 2018 General Election with about 50 percent of total votes, as announced by the Fijian Elections Office on Sunday.

This earned FijiFirst 27 of 51 seats in Parliament.

In his victory speech following the announcement on Sunday, Mr Bainimarama said he proud to become Fiji’s Prime Minister once again, “a Prime Minister of all who call Fiji home”.

“I’m proud to once again be the Prime Minister of a Fiji that has to offer so much more to its people and the world,” he said.

“Today I ask all who voted for us and also those that didn’t, to run with us as we all work together to make Fiji a better place for all our citizens and our future progeny under a united banner blue.”
