Fiji study shows people want one person one vote, and a smaller milita

An in-depth survey of what Fijians want from their government shows that the idea of one person, one vote, and dialogue between races and religions are popular.

The Pacific Theological College's Institute of Research and Social Analysis conducted the research, using focus groups with a total of 330 people, and in-depth interviews with 82 leaders.

It's Director, Dr Manfred Ernst, tells Bruce Hill some of the results might please the coup installed military government, but others, such as reducing the size of the military and making it subservient to an elected civilian government, might not.
