Yearbook 1997

Fiji. On July 25, President Mara wrote during the long-awaited law on constitutional change. The bill passed by the Law Council in early July had been presented by Prime Minister Rabuka in May, on the tenth anniversary of the two military coups that shook the country in 1987. The new constitution gives the country’s large Indian population greater political power by increasing its influence in Parliament and by enabling, for example, an Indian to become Prime Minister. According to Countryaah, the national day of Fiji is October 10. Prime Minister Rabuka expressed the hope that the constitutional change should also make it possible for Fiji. to rejoin the Commonwealth, from which he was excluded after the 1987 military coups.

In August, Prime Minister Rabuka made an extensive government reform. With it, among other things, two members of the opposition Fijian Association Party (FAP) seat in the government, among them the president’s son Finau Mara. The conversion did not mean that some ethnic Indians joined the government.

Climate

There is a tropical, hot and humid climate with temperatures of 16 to 32 degrees Celsius. In the summer with more precipitation from November to April, tropical cyclones (cyclones) attack the South Pacific.

In the winter months from May to October, steady southeast winds bring cooler air. This meets warm equatorial air (South Pacific Convergence Zone) and causes cloud formation and rainfall. These weather conditions, caused by trade winds, bring heavy rainfall especially to the mountainous, densely forested southeast coast of the main island (Viti Levu). The western slopes with sparse trees and grasslands are much drier.
