Solomon Islands Independence

July 7 is Independence Day in the Solomon Islands, commemorating the island nation’s political separation in 1978.

The “separation” may be over-stated, however: though self-government was achieved in 1976, and political independence for the islands obtained two years later, Solomon Islands remains a constitutional monarchy with the Queen of Solomon Islands, currently Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, as its head of state. Manasseh Sogavare is the current (and third-time) Prime Minister of Solomon Islands.
