Acting PM Has No Problem Defending Front Bench Alone

Acting PM Has No Problem Defending Front Bench Alone
Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum in Parliament at April 16, 2018.

Acting Prime Minister Ai­yaz Sayed-Khaiyum breezed through the Parliamentary sit­ting yesterday although he was the only figure on the Government’s front bench.

On any other day when Parliament is in session, he would be flanked on his left by Prime Minister Voreqe Baini­marama and on his right by Minister for Agriculture and National Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu.

Minister for Defence and National Se­curity Ratu Inoke Inoke would complete the powerful front bench which gives Mr Sayed-Khaiyum the moral support.

Behind him is Faiyaz Koya, Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism. But, the four are away overseas. Mr Bainima­rama, Mr Seruiratu and Mr Koya are in London for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).

Ratu Inoke is in Kuala Lumpur attend­ing the 16th Defence Services Asia Ex­hibition and Conference which ends on Thursday.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum had no problem defending the frontline alone with his mix of strong knowledge and wit. Op­position attacks were no match.
