Laisenia Qarase's Biography

Laisenia Qarase (pronounced [ŋɡaˈrase]; born 4 February 1941) is a Fijian political figure. He served as the sixth Prime Minister of Fiji from 2000 to 2006. After the military quashed the coup that led to the removal of Mahendra Chaudhry, Qarase joined the Interim Military Government as a financial adviser on 9 June 2000, until his appointment as Prime Minister on 4 July. He won two parliamentary elections, but the military intervened and forced him to step down on 5 December 2006. Qarase is controversial because his policies promote indigenous Fijians over those of other racial heritages in Fiji.
