Fiji Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama is polling highly in the latest pre-election poll in Fiji.

But two weeks out from the election, the Tebbut-Times poll shows one in five people are still undecided on who they will pick to run the country.

The Fiji Times reports the poll was carried out from Monday to Wednesday last week.

Surveyors asked over 18-year-olds who they would vote for if there was an election tomorrow.

Sixty-eight percent said they would vote for Bainimarama, the incumbent prime minister.

Twenty-two percent had not decided and ten percent declined to answer the question.

Just under a quarter – 24 percent – picked SODELPA’s Sitiveni Rabuka while the National Federation Party leader Dr Biman Prasad scored five percent

Other party leaders did not make over one percent.
