For the second time in six months, Fijians are going to go to the polls. In a earlier election in April, the opposition National Federation Party won the majority of the votes, but when its leader Mr Siddiqh Koya went to take over as Premier from Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara, the leader of the Alliance Party, Mr Koya found he had lost the support of his own party. For four days Fiji was virtually without a government...until the Governor General of Fiji, Ratu Sir George Cakabau, decided to ask Ratu Mara to form a government. He has governed since April with a minority of seats. A report on the coming elections from B.C.N.Z's Kathy Judd.
