Fiji’s Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama has said military will help police maintain law and order over ethnic tension after an election last week.

Fiji is now waiting for its president to recall parliament so lawmakers can vote for a new prime minister after no party won a clear majority in the general election.

The country’s politics was long dominated by tense race relations between its indigenous majority and a big ethnic Indian minority, before constitutional reform in 2013 to remove a race-based voting system that favored indigenous Fijians.
