A headman in one of the villages in Navosa has backed Government's move to establish casinos in the country.

Keiyasi village headman Apisai Namata in a statement told the Constitution Commission that the casino will bring more money to Fiji which will translate to more development locally.

Namata also called for Navosa to be separated from the Nadroga province and be declared the 15th province of Fiji. He argued that Navosa had 12 ‘tikina’ and a Government station.

He also asked that human rights are not introduced in the village and that the new Constitution should not permit same sex marriage.

Josese Laliqavota said the new Constitution should include a piece on coups – that it must be clearly written in the new document that there are to be no more coups in Fiji.

According to Laliqavota coups have been happening Fiji because of poverty, people hungry for power and the lack of virtues.

Adi Vulori Mumukawa who also made her submission to the commission said education should be free from primary school to tertiary level.
Alipate Dakevu told the commission that corporal punishment should be reintroduced but there should be a set of guidelines as how they be imposed on children.

Solomoni Kunawae while making his submission said Fiji should continue to be a secular state as all religions must be respected.

On corporal punishment, he said that children needed to be taught how to respect elders and have moral values instilled in them.

Meanwhile, other Navosa villagers who made their submission talked about retirement age to be 60,  manifesto of political parties be screened and be restrained to livelihood issues, set criteria for political candidates, rights of the elderly and Sunday to be declared a rest day.
