Transparency International Fiji has welcomed the successful national election saying it is committed to the nation’s return to democratic rule.
TI chair Donasiano Ruru says Fiji needs to make a new commitment to achieve a visible culture of accountability in order to build sustainable democracy.
Ruru says despite perceptions about conditions not being ideal, the people have demonstrated their desire to participate in the election.
He says they welcome the choices cast by the people on whom they will entrust their welfare and development, as well as authority and resources.
