Public Relations Officer (PRO) to the Prime Minister, Fred Vurobaravu has dismissed rumours of a reshuffle of ministerial portfolios.
“The Government has no intention to undertake a political reshuffle,” said Vurobaravu.
“It is committed to maintaining political stability in the country until the end of its term.”
The PRO was responding to what he described as false and unfounded rumors circulating on social media.
He said the rumors insinuated the government wants to remove and replace certain state ministers.
“The current government led by Prime Minister Bob Loughman has the support of major political parties,” he said.
“As the country is face with current COVID-19 and other natural disasters. The political groupings support and stand with the current government to face these challenges.
“This was reflected when the 2021 national budget was passed at the end of the 2020 budget session.
“The decision by several Members of Parliament to join the government side does not necessarily mean the Prime Minister will automatically make a reshuffle. The government composition will remain as it is, and it is solid.”
He added that once the government acquires the two-third majority in parliament, it will call on the Opposition for a review and amendment to the national Constitution.
