Anand Singh, who was Fiji's Attorney-General between 1999 and 2000 is interested in replacing Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum in the regime.
Singh was the lawyer for Natadola Bay Resorts Ltd - a subsidiary of Fiji National Provident Fund- until he was dismissed by the new FNPF Board at the end of June.
Sayed-Khaiyum has been given a letter by the military council advising him his services are no longer needed but so far his boss Frank Bainimarama has not taken any action to remove his trusted ally from office.
Singh was also a Fiji Labour Party Senator and the party's legal advisor.
He was replaced as FLP lawyer by party leader Mahendra Chaudhry's son, Rajendra Chaudhry.
Singh is currently without a job.
