Why no elections in Fiji

The Herald reports:

’s military ruler says the Prime Minister he ousted in a coup three years ago, Laisenia Qarase, would be returned to power if democratic elections were held tomorrow.

Yet apologists for the coup insist the Commodre is massively popular. I’m no fan of the former PM, but you know refusing to hold elections until people will vote for someone else is not exactly the most principled reason.

I wonder what excuse will be found in 2014 to delay elections again.
