FIJI and Japan have committed to work together now and post election.

An Information Ministry statement said the commitment was penned following a visit by Japanese ambassador to Fiji Takuji Hanatani to Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu Inoke Kubuabola last week.

Mr Hanatani said the Japanese Government welcomed the move by Fiji to return the country to democracy.

He said having a constitution and general election clearly indicated Fiji's commitment to returning to parliamentary democracy.

Mr Hanatani conveyed his government's commitment to assist in the election by sending a monitoring mission.

He said the Japanese Government recognised Fiji's lead role in regional developments.
