Some prominent religious groups have confirmed they will make submissions in the formation of Fiji’s new constitution while others have yet to decide, but have unanimously welcomed members to make their submissions 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 as well as the Assemblies of God who have opted to comment after a meeting which is underway.

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. TISI Sangam national president Sadasivan Naicker said they will have to make a submission for the betterment of Fiji and its people.

The Methodist Church will do so next month after their annual conference.
 
Assistant general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said they will finalise their submission after the annual conference which starts later this month.

Nawadra said they have issues that will be discussed during the conference that “needs” to be included in the new constitution.

He said the their agenda covers different issues that will benefit all Fijians.

Fiji’s Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has urged all Fijians to have a say in the constitution making.
