In their submission to the Constitution today, the Catholic Church said the military should not play any part in political governance.

Remesio Rogovakali, director of the Catholic Education Board, said, “The church reaffirms the recommendations in the Peoples Charter for Change, Peace and Progress that military’s role be realigned to include human security.”

He also stated that the Peoples Charter should enhance the RFMF community development partnership by strengthening its developmental role to ensure that its professional, technical and social potential is fully realised.

The Catholic Church also recommended that the new constitution should have a Covenantal Chapter.

“The covenantal chapter shall comprise of the shared principles that all Fijians agree to guide and govern the political, social, cultural and the economic life of our beloved country,” Rogovakali said.

He also stated that the chapter’s content should acknowledge God as creator of the human person, human dignity, common good, diversity, social justice, equality, freedom and rule of law.
