Suva City Open is an electoral division of Fiji, one of 25 open constituencies elected by universal suffrage (the remaining 46 seats, called communal constituencies, are allocated by ethnicity). Like the other open electorates, it came into being in 1999 and was used for the parliamentary elections of 1999, 2001, and 2006. It covers the central business district of Suva City.
