Fiji's interim Prime Minister Commodore Frank Bainimarama says the military's 'Clean-Up' campaign is still yet to be achieved.

Fiji live online says his comments were posted on the military's website.

Commodore Bainimarama said its forces will be required to play a very prominent role in the good governance of the country.

He said 2008 is going to be another important year for the military as it marks the second year of the campaign.

He says the military has copped a lot of negative criticism both domestic and international following the December 2006 coup.

These anti-elements he said, are those that have been badly affected by the event including advocates of democratic governance and human rights.

He said the hate elements together with the race issue are something that it will have to endure and be careful to counter as long as we are in the governance seat.

Commodore Bainimarama said they are security concerns that need continuous attention and vigilance in order to keep track of.
