Fijians have two weeks to feed back on draft constitution

People in Fiji have a fortnight to give their views on the regime’s draft constitution.

Having scrapped its commitment to form an expert group to prepare a new constitution, Fiji’s interim government has instead given the people of Fiji a fortnight to provide feedback on the draft document.

The draft document has been released and the Interim Prime Minster, Commodore Frank Bainimarama says people should give their views on it directly to the government.

No details have been given on how the feedback will be collated or analysed.

The final constitution is due out on the twelfth of April.

A Pacific politics expert says the draft constitution contains several unique aspects which may cause problems in the future.
