The Fijian Parliament, it is believed, will see for the first time a father and son team.

They are SODELPA president Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu and Dr Ratu Atonio Lalabalavu.

Dr Lalabalavu is a private health practitioner based in Wairiki, Taveuni.

He is 39 years-old.

He polled  5016 votes, 2851 more than his father.

Ratu Antonio received most votes from the Northern Division with 4833 while Ratu Naiqama only managed 769.

Ratu Naiqama’s biggest chunk of votes came from the Central division with 835.

Congratulatory messages were posted on social media for both father and son from family and friends.

Dr Lalabalavu in an interview last year had said he was inspired to stand for election because of his desire to serve people.

He is married to Kalisiana and they have three children.
