It appears that the military-imposed Interim Government will be in power in Fiji for a few years, with the deadline for a democratically elected government to be determined by the time needed for the carrying out of a census, the redrawing of electoral boundaries, and the compilation of the electoral rolls. In the meantime, the military has shown its firm intention to implement a ‘clean up corruption’ campaign. While corruption can impose considerable economic and social costs and the ‘clean up’ campaign may be able to reduce these, it would be an even more useful task for the military-backed government to implement a ‘clean up' campaign of the economic distortions that are holding back the market component of the Fijian economy.
