Jilila Kumar, who is a former vice principal, was made the assistant education minister after she joined parliament.

However, she no longer holds the position and has declined to tell Fiji media whether she resigned or was sacked.

She told FBC News that queries were to be directed to the FijiFirst general secretary, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
