Fiji’s Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has today announced that public servants, as Fijian citizens, should also have a say and participate in formulation of Fiji’s new Constitution to take our country to General Elections in 2014.

This has never happened before neither for the 1990 nor the 1997 Constitutional Review processes, a government statement said.

He said that public servants comprise nearly 4 per cent of Fiji’s population and as such their views as Fijian citizens must be heard.

“I would like to request all public servants to participate in the consultation process. Such participation and submissions however will have to be in your personal capacities and that no resources of the State should  be utilised in this process.

“Public Servants are free to air their views in front of the Constitutional Commission in their private capacity and not officially as public servants. This is in line with established procedures under the General Orders as well as the Public Service Act of 1999 which inter-alia articulates the Public Service Code of Conduct”.

Additionally, groups of Public Servants and/or Institutions such as Permanent Secretaries, Ministry of Finance, Public Service Commission, Office of the Auditor General, Judicial Department, Fiji Police Force, Fiji Prisons and Corrections Services, Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption, Office of Solicitor General, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions etc. are permitted to make official submissions to better explain their roles and responsibilities.

Bainimarama said that this is a one time opportunity for every Fijian to contribute to the process currently underway to get the governance of Fiji set on a sustainable path.
