A number of submission-makers want all Fijians in the country to live together in a peaceful and united environment.

Asena Naisara, a housewife of Lami while making her submission to the Constitution Commission earlier this week told the Commissioners she would like to see all races live together and that the government’s move to call everyone a Fijian was a very positive one.

“I want to see culture and religion to be embraced by everyone and everyone should be treated equally,” said Naisara.

“Women need to be represented and 30 per cent of the women need to be included in decision-making,” she said.

Naisara said the rule of law needs to apply to everyone and the Commission needs to ensure that good governance and democracy prevails.

She has also called on the restoration of the Great Council of Chiefs but if they are to be restored they need to be apolitical and only deal with the Vanua.

Meanwhile, other submission-makers present at the Lami Catholic hall have called on everyone to respect each individual’s religion stating that it is important for everyone to respect each other and not to criticize anyone because of their beliefs.

The Commission is again urging all Fijians to come forward and make their submissions before it closes on October 10.
