Bainimarama refusing to concede Fiji election

From Morning Report, 7:17 am on 22 December 2022

In the latest twist in Fiji's general election FijiFirst - led by Frank Bainimarama - is refusing to concede.

The party's General Secretary finally broke his silence in a news conference where he schooled the media on the constitution.

This comes off the back of a cliffhanger result with no clear winner, thrusting the Social Democratic Liberal Party or Sodelpa into the role of king-maker. 

On Tuesday Sodelpa annouced it will form a coalition government with the People's Alliance and the National Federation Party bloc, with it's leader Sitiveni Rabuka at the helm.

But, as Lydia Lewis reports,  FijiFirst is not having a bar of it.
