The man who started the coup culture in Fiji doubts the scheduled 2014 elections will go ahead in Fiji.
Major General Sitiveni Rabuka, who led two military coups, says the military has always had a presence in the Fiji culture.
He says they think of militant ways of changing things, rather than waiting for the next election.
Speaking at Canterbury University, General Rabuka says when we talk about democracy in the Pacific, one size does not fit all.
He's hoping elections would go ahead, but says that hope is not based on very good grounds.
