Sally Round goes to Fiji to check progress towards a new constitution and elections in 2014
The process of writing a new constitution is underway in Fiji. It will be the country's fourth since independence in 1970.
The regime of Commodore Frank Bainimarama abolished the 1997 constitution three years ago.
While some have decried the process as a sham and illegal, others hope that what's underway now will mean a return to democracy in elections which the interim government has promised for 2014.
Sally Round has travelled to Fiji and spoken to those spearheading the plans for a new constitution as well as regime critics, politicians and ordinary citizens.

8:12 am Sunday 15 December: Insight: What's NZ done for human rights in Sri Lanka?
The recent Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Sri Lanka was dominated by debate about human rights abuses including alleged war crimes, intimidation, and in some cases even abduction.
Despite Sri Lanka's assurances it is making progress towards a peaceful and stable society since the end of its three decades-long civil war in 2009, the nation is second only to Iraq for political disappearances.
Leaders from India and Canada boycotted the meeting.
John Key says the history of New Zealand diplomacy shows engagment is more sucessful than boycotting.
Was attending the right decision?
Radio New Zealand's chief parliamentary reporter, Jane Patterson, travelled to Sri Lanka and followed not only the diplomatic exchanges, but also spoke to families who have had sons, daughters and husbands abducted.
