Interesting times lie ahead as part of the 18 FijiFirst parliamentarians led by Opposition Leader, Inia Seruiratu met this afternoon to decide on their next step after the resignation of all the FijiFirst party office bearers yesterday.

Former foundation member, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says it is now up to the Registrar of Political Parties and the MPs on what they will do as they have resigned.

FijiFirst MPs, Faiyaz Koya, Premila Kumar, Parveen Bala, Hem Chand, Ketan Lal, Rinesh Sharma, Viam Pillay and Joseph Nand are not part of the 18.

FijiFirst MP, Mosese Bulitavu who is part of the 18 MPs to meet today, says party MP, Faiyaz Koya should resign as an MP given he was the messenger of the unlawful directive to the FijiFirst Caucus.

Bulitavu says Koya also ridiculed the Speaker publicly by allowing the confidential correspondence by the Speaker to be posted on the FijiFirst Facebook page together with his reply to the Speaker's letter.

He says when former Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama attended court, Koya was the one who took the invalid termination letter to be signed and he should be responsible for implicating him more.

Bulitavu says Koya co-signed the letter to notify the Speaker on the vacation of the parliamentary seats of the 17 MPs.

Bulitavu adds Koya will be responsible for the demise of FijiFirst as being the party’s registered officer who couldn't rectify the breaches the Registrar of Political Parties had given notice on.

We have been trying to get comments from Koya. He has not been making any comments.

Seruiratu was not in the meeting as he is away overseas.

FijiFirst MP, Jone Usamate just said that they are waiting for the process and will not make further comments.
