Members of Fiji’s Constitutional Commission have started preparing themselves for their work in July.

This was confirmed to FijiLive by a member of the commission Peni Moore.

“Yash has us reading and researching a variety of papers and other country constitutions to be prepared to begin in July,” she said.

Commission chair Professor Yash Ghai earlier said they hope to spend three months on public consultations and three months on the drafting of the new constitution.

Ghai said they will immediately begin work and they are in the process of appointing people and staff for the work ahead of them.

He said the commission will listen to the views of all citizens who want to contribute in the making of the new constitution.

Members of the Commission include constitutional scholar Professor Ghai, Taufa Vakatale, the first female deputy Prime Minister of Fiji, Dr Satendra Nandan, an academic, writer and former Member of Parliament, human rights and constitutional expert Professor Christina Murray and children’s activist Peni Moore.
