THE President of Nauru, Baron Divavesi Waqa, is happy to hear that the general election is coming up in Fiji.

Mr Waqa, who was part of the Pacific Islands Development Forum in Nadi last week, said everything seemed to be in place and was confident the election would go ahead.

"I am happy that Fiji will engage in a democratic process in electing their political leaders which is very important in the world of democracy now," Mr Waqa said.

"You need to have a fair election and I am confident that it will happen in September."

"It's an exciting year for Fiji as they will be able to choose for themselves a government that will take them well into the future," Mr Waqa said.

Mr Waqa visited his relatives in Naloto Village yesterday, telling them he hoped everyone in Fiji would love one another more which was important.
