Ratu Jone Navakamocea is a Fijian chief and politician. A member of the Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua (SDL) Party, he won the Serua Navosa Open Constituency in the 2006 Parliamentary election and was subsequently appointed State Minister for National Planning in the government of Laisenia Qarase. Following a military coup on 5 December 2006, he was appointed Minister for Local Government, Urban Development and Public Utilities in the interim Cabinet formed by Commodore Frank Bainimarama, who had led the coup. Navakamocea was thus one of the few members of the Qarase government to be given a post in the interim government.

In August 2006, Navakamocea called for the term Indo-Fijian to be banned, saying it amounted to identity theft. [1]
