From election to coup in Fiji : the 2006 campaign and its aftermath( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In May 2006 Fiji held its tenth general election since independence in 1970. In a country with an unenviable history of electoral trauma, the mood was apprehensive - not least because of controversial public statements against the incumbent Qarase government being made by the commander of Fiji's military forces. Despite a record number of parties and candidates, the winners were the heavily church-backed SDL, the party of choice of the majority of indigenous Fijians; and the Fiji Labour Party, the party preferred by most Indo-Fijians. Although the result was ethnically polarized, for the first time in Fijian history the successful candidates came together to share power in a constitutionally ordained multiparty Cabinet, with Qarase retaining the prime ministership. But the fragile collaboration was short-lived. On 5 December, Commodore Bainimarama ordered a military take-over, ousting the elected government and replacing it with an 'interim' government of his choice. With contributions from ex-Vice President Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi, ousted Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase, leader of the Fiji Labour Party and now interim Minister for Finance Mahendra Chaudhry, and an impressive array of leading commentators on Fijian affairs, this book provides a comprehensive, penetrating analysis of the lead-up to, the outcome and the aftermath of Fiji's historic 2006 election - including the December coup. Shedding light on the complex weave of traditional chiefly systems, race relations, economics, constitutionality, the military ethos and religion, From Election to Coup in Fiji is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Fiji, the South Pacific and the politics of divided societies

From Election to Coup The 2006 Campaign and its Aftermath by Jon Fraenkel( )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In May 2006 Fiji held its tenth general election since independence in 1970. In a country with an unenviable history of electoral trauma, the mood was apprehensive if not tense - not least because of controversial public statements against the incumbent Qarase government being made by the commander of Fiji's military forces. Despite a record number of parties and candidates, the winners were the two big parties - the heavily church-backed SDL, the party of choice of the majority of indigenous Fijians; and the Fiji Labour Party, the party preferred by most Indo-Fijians. Although the result was ethnically polarised, for the first time in Fijian history the successful candidates came together to share power in a constitutionally ordained multiparty cabinet, with Laisenia Qarase retaining the prime ministership. But the fragile collaboration was short-lived. On 5 December 2006, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama ordered a military takeover, declaring himself 'President', ousting the elected government and replacing it with an 'interim' government of his choice, and once again throwing Fiji into political turmoil. With contributions from ex-Vice President Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi, ousted Prime Minister Laesenia Qarase, leader of the Fiji Labour Party and now interim Minister for Finance Mahendra Chaudhry, and an impressive array of leading commentators on Fijian affairs, this book provides a comprehensive and penetrating analysis of the lead-up to, the outcome and the aftermath of Fiji's historic 2006 election. Shedding light on the complex weave of traditional chiefly systems, race relations, economics, constitutionality, the military ethos and religion, From Election to Coup in Fiji is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Fiji, the South Pacific and the politics of divided societies
The loneliness of the pro-government backbencher and the precariousness of simple majority rule in Tuvalu by Paulson Panapa( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors analyse the twists and turns of Tuvalu central government politics, particularly since the two elections of 1993, and consider an alternative framework which entails the abandonment of the unhappy institutionalisation of the opposition as a government-in-waiting, the introduction of an eight member executive representing all the islands, and the adoption of a stronger oversight role for the island-based Falekaupule. The authors outline the institutional and political framework established in Tuvalu at independence, and the way this has developed in the period thereafter. They review the succession of governments, why each fell and how each sought to engineer for itself a longer term in office. They also review the 1997 Falekaupule Act and the operation of local level assemblies, and set out our alternative framework, asking whether this might better fit the local customary framework as well as improving the quality of central government performance
