The Citizens' Constitutional Forum (CCF) will train more than sixty community leaders in the Northern division on how to participate in constitutional dialogue this week .

The workshops which will take place in Labasa and Savusavu will allow participants to acquaint themselves with the constitutional process and to identify issues they wish to see addressed in the new Constitution.

They will also have time to draw up submissions to the Constitutional Commission.

CCF chief executive, Reverend Akuila Yabaki in a statement said participants would return to their communities and help their people to prepare submssions for Constitution Commissioners who will tour the North in four weeks time.

“We’ve identified strong community leaders to participate in the workshops to ensure that they take the message into villages, settlements, religious groups, to as many people as possible,” Reverend Yabaki said.

“There’s limited time so we need to ensure that as many people as possible make their views known. By targeting leaders, CCF hopes to spread the message that everyone must have a voice in this process.”
