The interim regime has decided to allow former Fiji residents voting rights in future general elections if they obtain dual citizenship.
Under the regime's Citizenship Decree, former Fiji residents who have migrated overseas can now obtain dual citizenship with blue Fiji passports.
Previous constitutions and even the abrogated 1997 Constitution disallowed dual citizenship.
Coupfourpointfive has been told some sections of Fiji's society are not happy saying this is unfair and discriminatory as these former citizens have no interest in Fiji other than to visit relatives or in the case of a few, establish businesses.
A dual citizenship application costs $3500 and currently the interim regime claims about 50 former residents are applying every month for Fiji passports.
