All Fijians need to change their mindset and should stop fighting over petty issues and concentrate on taking Fiji forward, a retired school principal told the Constitution Commission yesterday in Rakiraki.

Anand Balram in his submission said people of Fiji need to be progressive.

He said people in developed countries have made it to the moon and here in Fiji, people are still fighting over land.

“We are fighting over land, water and look at where others have reached, to the moon and here we are caught fighting over issues which only drag us back,” Balram said.

Balram reiterated that the diversity of all cultures and religions in Fiji should be embraced and used as a weapon to move forward.

Furthermore, Balram told the Commission that Fiji should move away from the western “minister-ship” of democracy and develop its own.

“Why should we be copycats, we should develop our own system of democracy keeping in mind our own needs and requirements,” he said.
