A Fiji government MP says an inquiry into allegations the army commander was plotting a coup will clear up unresolved issues within the armed forces.
Samisoni Tikonisau says there appears to be problems in the camp and a rift is evident.
Three senior officers, who were suspended in January, have accused Commodore Frank Bainimarama of planning to overthrow the government in December in case he wasn't re-appointed.
Mr Tikonisau says a parliamentary inquiry would get to the bottom of the allegations.
"It's pretty clear that there's serious divisions within the institution. A lot of them are probably there for the sake of a job, they prefer to remain silent under the circumstances. Though since this information has come to light, I think it needs to addressed properly through a proper inquiry."
Mr Tikonisau says the inquiry could be a multi-party affair so that there wouldn't be accusations of government bias against Mr Bainimarama.
Relations between the commander and the government were at a low point at the end of last year, prior to his re-appointment.
