Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama is urging political parties to make meaningful submissions when they appear before the Constitution Commission.
Bainimarama says most political parties are using the opportunity to get votes as that is their only agenda.
He says these parties do not have anything to give to the people of Fiji.
I’m trying to tell the political parties that this constitution is not about politics – it’s not about political parties. It’s about Fiji. They should get that into their submission. It’s about the people of Fiji – it’s about the farmers. It’s about children and their schooling. It’s about water. It’s about what we can do to ensure there is no political strife in five years time.
As consultations are picking up momentum – Bainimarama continues to urge the public to take time out and make suggestions for the new constitution.
I would like to see all citizens – the business community, farmers, teachers especially the youths to make their views known – so their voices are heard and constitutional needs met.
Consultations are held at the Nausori Catholic Hall this morning.
