This was confirmed to FijiLive today by general secretary, reverend Tevita Nawadra.

"We would definitely like to raise issues which affect the nation and our people," he said.

"And these includes the name of the nation, population sizes in certain organisations and the role of military and redefining its’ purpose in government."

"All the submissions by the members of Methodist Church have been given to the legal section and everything in regards to the constitution submission is in pipeline," he added.

The Church has set a deadline of October 13 for its submission to the Commission and according to Nawadra, they would prefer to make a public submission.
