In Brief

On 1 July 2009, the Bainimarama regime announced a road map for democracy that promised a transition to parliamentary democratic rule by September 2014 (Ministry of National Planning 2009). An important part of this roadmap were the plans for a constitutionmaking process that would provide a ‘solid foundation and framework for the rebuilding of our nation’.
