The Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua (SDL) party in conveying its congratulatory Diamond Jubilee message to Queen Elizabeth II is hopeful about Fiji's chances of regaining its Commonwealth membership.

Party leader Laisenia Qarase has requested the British High Commission in Suva to transmit the message to the Buckingham Palace together with their congratulatory wishes.

“We look forward to regaining full membership of the Commonwealth family of nations headed by her Majesty and extend warm and respectful congratulations to her majesty Queen Elizabeth II as Britain celebrates 60 years of reign," he said.

“Her diamond jubilee is a momentous and joyful occasion for the Monarch and her people.”

Qarase paid tribute to the Royal family and spoke of the affection that the Fiji people still hold for the monarch.

“May the rest of her Majesty’s reign be richly blessed.”
