This Case Study is part of The Global State of Democracy 2023 Report

The Fijian military played a constructive role in ensuring a democratic transition in the 2022 election but did so only by ensuring its absence and allowing democratic processes to run their course. While the specific reasons for this remain obscured from public view, the military’s role enshrined in the 2013 Constitution and Kalouniwai’s public criticism of the current government indicate that the military continues to see itself as a core Fijian political institution.
