With the pending annoucement of the ‘Road Map’ lets look closer at what the people of Fiji really want. A good place to start is with recent polls.

There were four polls on the internal situation.
In October last year 63% thought the NCBFF and People’s Charter processes were “a waste of taxpayers’ money.” This was not a good question because we do no know the effect of costs on process. A more carefully worded question would not have linked the two.
In April, 56% thought the President had done the right thing in abrogating the 1997 Constitution, but only 38% thought Fiji would return to democracy by 2011.
Earlier this month, 81% thought the political parties should support the Government’s initiatives to take the country forward. The first and third polls (NCBFF and 2011) seem at odds with the other two.
