There has been no word from the Fiji regime about the delay of its draft constitution, which will replace the one produced by its Constitution Commission last month.
Three weeks ago, the interim prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, used a televised address to announce that the new draft should be available for deliberation by the end of January.
The delay follows last month’s change in the decreed schedule for the Constituent Assembly to hold its first meeting.
The Assembly was due to begin deliberations three weeks ago but to date the regime has not named its members.
It is now expected to sit after a deadline expires in two weeks for existing parties to re-register.
