Fiji's i-Taukei population should be included in the Vola ni Kawa Bula (VKB), the Constitution Commission heard on Friday.

Youth advocate Jone Sinavi highlighted this issue to the Commission while making his submission on the opening day  at the Civic Centre in Suva.

He said although a lot of i-Taukei people talk about the importance of ownership of their land and the importance of their identity, many still feel insecure because they are not registered in the VKB.

“I am a victim of this. And to be honest, I can call myself as a foreigner to this land that I call my own,” said Sinavi.

"There is a need for all i-Taukei to be registered in the VKB for a sense of ownership and the new constitution should have a provision for this."

"There is also a need for a scholarships for the upskilling of blue collar jobs."

“The government is concentrating on sponsoring education for white collar job than that of trade and talent.”

Another youth advocate Miki Wali said there is a need for a better representation of youths in parliament to address issues concerning youths in Fiji.

Wali also urged the commission if there could also include a youth member in their team.

Constitution Commission Professor Yash Ghai said they will look at the submissions thoroughly and will make a record of it.

Prof Ghai said there were interesting issues tabled by members of the public and he lookinfg forward to a huge response in the coming days.
