 Fiji coup of 2000 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Fiji coup of 2000 was a complicated affair involving a civilian putsch by hardline Fijian nationalists against the elected government of Prime Minister Mahendra Chaudhry on 19 May 2000, the attempt by President Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara to assert executive authority on 27 May, and his own resignation, possibly forced, on 29 May.
Parliamentary elections in May 1999 had resulted in a decisive victory for the Peoples Coalition, a multiracial grouping that was dominated by the predominantly Indo-Fijian Labour Party but which also included three parties supported mainly by indigenous Fijians.
Two days later, on 29 May 2000, Mara resigned in circumstances that are still a matter of debate five years later.
