The Constitution Commission is planning to submit Fiji's draft Constitution  before Christmas.

Commission chairperson Professor Yash Ghai told FijiLive that before the people enjoy their festive season in their villages, they can have a fair idea about what to expect in the country's new Constitution.

“This will allow Fijians to talk about the news laws with families and friends,” said Prof Ghai.

“Also they will have the opportunity to make comments on the drafted constitution.”

He said the Commission will not extend the due date further for submissions as  they have a deadline to meet.

“We have to analyse the views of the submissions, sit down with the Commission and have a general discussion before we can do a draft constitution.”

The initial due date for the submission was to be the end of September but this was extended to October 10, 2012.
