Fiji's interim prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, has restated that any elected government will do its work on the military's terms.

Commodore Bainimarama has told the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation in Kadavu that the military will see that the government that comes into power after the 2014 election does not change the path to move Fiji forward.

He says they will prepare all leaders to be familiar with their targets before the elections.

Commodore Bainimarama says they will see that there's no diversion from the path they have set.

He also says the military has promised that no military officer will ever be killed again at the hands of citizen as had happened in 2000.

The constititution, which was abolished last year, placed the elected government above the armed forces.
