Fiji Interim Government Resignation Welcome
National's Foreign Affairs spokesperson Max Bradford today welcomed the resignation of Fiji's interim Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase.
"We welcome the resignation of the interim government and would equally welcome the rapid restoration of a newly elected parliament which reflects the will of the people as the will is now.
"Any government established through parliament at present should be tested at the earliest possible stage by an election.
"When this is achieved we will support the New Zealand Government in removing sanctions imposed on Fiji.
