Fiji's Qarase wants to be involved in constitution discussion

8:13 am on 9 March 2012

Fiji's deposed Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase wants to be involved in the constitution consultation process, but is still waiting to be invited.

The regime's leader, Commodore Frank Bainimarama is to make an announcement today on the constitution consultation process.

Fijilive reports Mr Qarase says he would like to take part in rebuilding Fiji's constitution but he has not received any invitation from the government yet.

He says he is so disappointed because, even his party, the SDL, has not been notified about taking part in the constitution consultation process.

Mr Qarase says the SDL will be meeting soon to discuss issues concerning the 2014 election and those eligible to contest.
