Fiji’s government will also make submissions towards the Constitution Commission.

This was confirmed to FijiLive by Attorney General and acting Prime Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

“Government of course will be making its submissions, all Fijians as individuals are entitled to make submissions,” said Sayed-Khaiyum.

“There are many issues that we would like to be discussed but at the same time people simply want to express the views that they just want good roads, better schools, better education, access to education, access to housing,” he said.

“Nothing like we said is out-of-bound, you can go and express and tell the commission whatever you like,” he said.

Commission chair Professor Yash Ghai said everyone is entitled to make their own submissions which can be submitted to them at any time.

Ghai said it is important that everyone be part of the process and that the commission is currently working on their traveling schedule around the country.

He also said those making submissions are protected from any legal proceedings against them for anything that they say but people need to respect all differences and not unduly attack the views of others.
