Ba West Fijian Provincial Communal is an electoral division of Fiji, one of 23 communal constituencies reserved for indigenous Fijians. (Of the remaining 48 seats, 23 are reserved for other ethnic communities and 25, called Open Constituencies, are elected by universal suffrage). The electorate covers the eastern areas of Ba Province.


Election results

In the following tables, the primary vote refers to first-preference votes cast. The final vote refers to the final tally after votes for low-polling candidates have been progressively redistributed to other candidates according to pre-arranged electoral agreements (see electoral fusion), which may be customized by the voters (see instant run-off voting).

In the 1999 election, Ponipate Lesavua won with more than 50 percent of the primary vote; therefore, there was no redistribution of preferences.
