THE operations of the military and the police will not be affected by the delay in the appointment of their leaders.

Defence Minister Joketani Cokanasiga says despite the leadership issue of the two organisations the administration aspect is functioning well.

"We've not heard any details from the Constitution Office Commission," Mr Cokanasiga said.

"I am hoping to hear who will succeed Commodore Bainimarama as commander.

"I hope the process will be finalised next month.

"All we need, perhaps, is the new bosses who will come in and say I would like to see the emphasis move in this direction."

Mr Cokanasiga said he had no doubt things would continue to run as they have been or be tightened even further once the leadership issue was sorted out.

Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama will step down as commander at the end of the month.
