THE latest Tebbutt-Times Poll has canvassed the issue of the reinstatement of the Great Council of Chiefs and poll results are showing mixed reactions.

When asked should the GCC be restored, out of the 1047 surveyed in urban and peri urban areas of Suva, Nasinu, Lami, Nausori, Nadi, Lautoka and Ba between August 4 and 6, 2014, 33 per cent said they did not want the reinstatement of the GCC while 15 per cent said they did not care.

A total of 48 percent of the people surveyed in the poll said they wanted the reinstatement of the GCC while 4 per cent refused to provide their opinion on the question.

The results noted differences in opinion gender and ethnicity wise, with females more likely than males to support restoration (51 per cent and 44 per cent respectively).

A total of 65 per cent of the iTaukei population surveyed said they wanted the reinstatement of the GCC and 30 per cent of the Fijians of Indian decent supported its reinstatement.

The survey also highlighted that the younger generation (18 per cent) between the ages of 18 to 24 years said they did not care about the reinstatement of the GCC.

The poll results also revealed that more females (51 per cent) and fewer males (44 per cent) said they wanted the reinstatement of the GCC.
