Mahendra Chaudhry says Fiji's priority is a roadmap which shows the path to democracy

Fiji's former Prime Minister, Mahendra Chaudhry, says the road map for the country's future is now uncertain.

Just over two weeks ago, the President abrogated the constitution and re-appointed Commodore Frank Bainimarama as caretaker Prime Minister.

Mahendra Chaudhry, the head of the Fiji Labour Party says that that move, after a Court of Appeal ruling that held the interim regime was illegal, was to be expected.

"I don't think the solution lies there. I think the solution lies in how do we go from here. Do we have a serious roadmap for return to democracy or not and that is what needs to be sorted out first. We had one, but that is now, of course, uncertain."
