Facts about Fiji

Administrative divisions: 4 divisions and 1 dependency*; Central , Eastern , Northern , Rotuma* , Western
Area: total: 18 ,270 sq km land: 18 ,270 sq km water: 0 sq km
Background: Fiji became independent in 1970 , after nearly a century as a British colony. Democratic rule was interrupted by two military coups in 1987 , caused by concern over a government perceived as dominated by the Indian community (descendants of contract laborers brought to the islands by the British in the 19th century). The coups and a 1990 constitution that cemented native Melanesian control of Fiji , led to heavy Indian emigration; the population loss resulted in economic difficulties , but ensured that Melanesians became the majority. A new constitution enacted in 1997 was more equitable. Free and peaceful elections in 1999 resulted in a government led by an Indo-Fijian , but a civilian-led coup in May 2000 ushered in a prolonged period of political turmoil. Parliamentary elections held in August 2001 provided Fiji with a democratically elected government led by Prime Minister Laisenia QARASE. Re-elected in May 2006 , QARASE was ousted in a December 2006 military coup led by Commodore Voreqe BAINIMARAMA , who initially appointed himself acting president. In January 2007 , BAINIMARAMA was appointed interim prime minister.
