The Methodist Church will be making its submission to the Constitution Commission by the end of September.

This was revealed today by the Church's general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra at their annual conference in Suva.

Rev Nawadra said they will only discuss the framework of the constitution as their submission and not the whole content due to time constraint.

He said the church is encouraging its members to contribute on issues they think that the church has not touched.

“There are many local issues that concern the church and members are encouraged to raise it to the commission individually.”

"Apart from the main body's submission, other small churches are also advised to make their own submission."

Meanwhile, some prominent religious groups have confirmed they will make submissions towards the formation of Fiji’s new constitution while others are yet to decide, but have unanimously asked their members to make their individual submission to the Constitution Commission.

The Catholic Church is awaiting the green light from the Archbishop to decide on their submission.

The Anglican Church will have to wait till October to decide on whether they will make a submission.

Fiji Muslim League general secretary Taabish Akbar said they will have to finalise some issues before tabling their agenda to the commission.

Then India Sanmarga Ikya (TISI) Sangam of Fiji has also confirmed to FijiLive they will make their submission.
