Talk:Vice-President of Fiji

This list does not reflect that the first post coup constitution had two VPs

from memory they were (and someone would need to check this) 1990-1992 VP1: Rt. Sir Josaia Tavaiqia, VP2 Rt. Inoke Takeveikata 1992-1993 VP1: Rt. Sir KKT Mara, VP2: Rt. Inoke Takeveikata (or Tavaiqia? or both, i seem to remember Tavaiqia died around this time) 1994-1997 VP1 and VP2: Some combo of Tavaiqia, Takeveikata, and Iloilo (Iloilo replaced Tavaiqia as both Tui Vuda and VP, and at some point during this time Takeiveikata died.)

once the 1997 ammendments were promulgated we went to the single VP that we have now.

although having two VPs seems rather silly at first glance, it had the advantage that the VPs were not full time positions and drew on the public purse only when acting as president. Now we have a full time VP that costs us a full salary, housing, car, security, household servants etc.

Qarinivalu was not vice president[edit]

Ratu Inoke Takiveikata, the Qaranivalu was never vice president.

The Inoke Takiveikata who was vice president was a chief from Lasakau in Bau, who died in late 90's.

I'm not sure how to correct this

Apparent vacancies[edit]

I've filled the holes in the dates, and since it also seems that there's no Vice President after the recent coup d'état... Can anyone confirm this? —Nightstallion (?) 13:53, 20 December 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Um, it depends on whether you "recognize" the military government or not. The Great Council of Chiefs still recognizes the ousted government, including all its officials. The Military said today that it regards the Great Council as an irrelevance not to be taken seriously. So, those who regard the Military government as illegitimate will continue to recognize Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi as Vice President. Those who regard it as legitimate will not. In terms of "who controls the country," he's out of office now. David Cannon 14:01, 20 December 2006 (UTC)[reply]
