The leader of Fiji's Sodelpa party Ro Teimumu Kepa says there is no substantive evidence to back up the Prime Minister's claim the opposition is a group of liars.
Frank Bainimarama says being in parliament will be no big deal and it would mean meeting up with the same group of liars he met on the campaign trail.
Ro Teimumu, who is to lead the opposition in parliament, says there have been similar labels in the past which have not been established in the courts and it is time to stop branding people.
"You know hopefully, he will get on with the business of governing the country and remove himself from the ... what we call in Fiji ... verandah kind of language and see that his role as Prime Minister is one that they look up to and they see him as an example to the people in the country."
Ro Teimumu says all the Prime Minister has to do is take the matter to the police and it will be taken on from there.
