The former director of the Human Rights Commission, Shaista Shameem, and former High Court judge, Nazhat Shameem, are said to be outraged at Attorney General's Aiyaz Sayed Kaiyum's decision to abrogate the Constitution.
The two lost their jobs when the Constitution was thrown out the window on April the 10th.
Coupfourpointfive has been told both had advised Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum and interim prime minister, Frank Bainimarama, to appoint a caretaker prime minister instead of abrogating the Constitution.
It's claimed they wanted someone they could control, and that it was planned to ask him to declare - after a few months - that he could not handle the job.
The job would then be handed back to Bainimarama who would then use the excuse that no one wanted to be caretaker PM while Fiji fixed its electoral problems and headed back to elections.
Sources also say former chief justice, Anthony Gates, has also decided not to join the bench, because he, too, is unhappy with the abrogation of the Constitution.
The interim government has yet to announce a Chief Justice - a role some have wanted Nazhat Shameem to assume.
