Pacific Islands Weekly 10 October. Fiji Day, Fiji, Tokelau, Niue, PNG, Quality NZ Aid, Pacific Media Centre


Fiji celebrates its public holiday called Fiji Day every 10 October to commemorates the signing of the Deed of Cession in 1874, which initiated a 96-year long process of gradual granting of independence from British rule. On the same day, 10 October, in 1970, Fiji finally became a fully independent nation.

SODELPA candidate Sitiveni Rabuka  assured a questioner than the Chinese would not take over the island of Kadavu if Fiji failed to repay its $500m loan, as rumoured on social media. Answering another question, Rabuka did not discount SODELPA would bring back the Great Council of Chiefs if elected to government.
