Fiji’s Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says he had offered his predecessor Voreqe Bainimarama the hand of cooperation and thanked him for his services to the country.

He made this known in his national address today and he alluded to his first national address when he explained that the governing three-party coalition – The People’s Alliance, National Federation Party and SODELPA – had wished to develop a positive relationship with Mr Bainimarama and his FijiFirst party in parliament.

He added that they would always be prepared to consider Mr Bainimarama’s ideas and proposals and adopt them if they were worthy.

“Mr Bainimarama has now made it more than clear that he rejects the idea of Government and Opposition working together for Fiji,” Mr Rabuka said.

“He has chosen instead to walk the same path of arrogance, aggression and provocation that he walked in the last 16 years.

“It was the path that led to his recent election loss.”
