SUVA, Fiji (Fiji Times, Oct. 10, 2017) – As Fijians around the country and the world celebrate Fiji's 47 years of independence today, Opposition Leader Ro Teimumu Kepa has called on every Fijian to join them in their quest to seek a Fiji that was just, democratic and united.

In a statement yesterday, Ro Teimumu said this was to lay the basis for a durable, stable and progressive nation.

She said Fiji's independence came about because there was a quest for freedom, justice and unity among its leaders and people to determine Fiji's future.

"We have indeed come of age to celebrate our national life as a diverse nation despite adverse political circumstances in the past 11 years," she said.

"It is time to restore the goodness, faith and trust of our own people in Fiji before we move on to reclaim Fiji's standing as a democratic and just nation in the international fora."
