Transparency International Fiji has commended Fiji following the election, saying that now Fiji must make
commitments towards achieving a visible national culture of accountability.
The group's chairperson Dr Donasiano Ruru says this was an important step to take post-election.
Dr Ruru says despite perceptions about conditions not being ideal, the people have demonstrated their desire to participate in the election and a successful national election is an important step in the nation's return to democracy.
Dr Ruru said in order for democracy to be sustainable however, accountability and transparency were both paramount.
