PM defends removal of women's clauses Fiji's Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has defended the removal of many of the separate provisions for women in the draft constitution.

Many provisions including the requirement that a certain number of women be on political parties' lists of candidates, have been removed from that proposed in the draft drawn up by Professor Yash Ghai and the Constituional Commission.

“The Constitution should promote equality in all forms, not encourage division of any sort,” Bainimarama said.

He said the new Draft Constitution had not included the so-called entrenched provisions because no law should be above parliament.

“The parliament represents the voice of the people. But this does not mean that property or land ownership will not be protected,” he said.

Bainimarama said the new laws are practical, but still guarantees the protection of the rights of the iTaukei not to have their land alienated.

“All these laws have been introduced without the so-called entrenched provisions of the past,” Bainimarama said.
