This is a worthwhile read that explains the voting provisions in the Professor Yash Ghai Draft Constitution.
"The Decree setting up the Commission required the Draft Constitution to have certain features: one person, one vote, one value; the elimination of ethnic voting; proportional representation; a voting age of 18.
The Commission invited a distinguished Norwegian electoral expert, Dr Kåre Vollan, to visit Fiji. He held long discussions with the Commission, met political party leaders and local experts, and participated in a public forum. His input was very valuable in formulating the Commission’s decisions on the topic.
The Commission also studied the People’s Charter, and writing on the elections in Fiji in the past, as well as on electoral systems generally.
