Transparency International (TI) Fiji says "Yes" to integrity and "No" to corruption in their submission to the Constitution Commission in Suva.

In presenting their submission, Chairman of the Board of TI, Apisalome Tudreu said the new constitution must reflect the nation’s commitment to transparency and accountability.

He said this is to ensure that the legislature, judiciary, law enforcement agencies, and businesses can remain effective and independent.

Tudreu said the new constitution should also recognise the important role that communities, the media, and civil society organisations play in ensuring transparency and legitimacy of our public institutions.

“To support the role of these organisations, the constitution should recognise the involvement of these organisations. “

Continuing with the theme of transparency and accountability, Tudreu said political integrity would be maintained with some key actions, including the introduction of transparency in political financing for politicians and political parties, and the implementation of a code of conduct and integrity pledge for Members of Parliament.

TI presented six issues of concern to the Constitutional Commission and identified specific inclusions in the new constitution for each of these issues.
