Reports from Fiji say its new police commissioner is to be a South African.
FBC News reports the prime minister Frank Bainimarama revealed this during a talk back show yesterday.
He says the candidate is still holding discussions with members of the Interview panel.
Mr Bainimarama says he has returned to discuss the appointment with his family and when he is ready he will inform them on taking up the post.
