MPs in cheers, jeers

THE FijiFirst government's policies continued to be questioned and criticised by the Opposition in Parliament yesterday.

A total of 13 MPs replied to the President's speech during the Parliament opening session — some cheering and some jeering and outlining their views on what they thought of the plans the President had laid out for the country.

Some Opposition MPs questioned the legitimacy of the 2013 Constitution, Government's continued attack on them and the quality of State services such as health and transportation.

On the other hand, Government MPs congratulated the President for his gracious speech, labelling some of the comments by the Opposition as "shameful conduct" — misleading the august house.
