Leader of Opposition, Sitiveni Rabuka has called on the Prime Minister to do the honourable thing, if he can find it in himself and resign.

While responding to the opening address by the President Jioji Konrote, the SODELPA Leader says the Prime Minister should advise the President to call fresh elections so that the people of Fiji can give a fresh mandate to its representatives to bring this country and its people out of the political doldrums and economic situation we are in and stand on.

Rabuka says the President did not specifically relate the promised developments to the budget for this year.

Rabuka says none of the Opposition input into the debates in the last session found its way into the President's address for incorporation into government actions.
