Fiji kicked out

Pacific island nation suspended from Commonwealth for failing to restore democracy


 

The Commonwealth of Nations has suspended Fiji’s membership over its government’s failure to hold elections and open talks with opposition groups. The country has been under military rule since 2006, when a coup placed the leader of its armed forces in power. Fiji’s representatives will no longer be able to participate in Commonwealth activities or meetings, but the country is technically still a Commonwealth member.
