Catholic women briefed on draft Fiji Constitution

On Tuesday 2 April Fiji’s Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, held an open dialogue and briefing session on the draft Fiji Constitution with the Catholic Women’s Forum.

The Catholic Women’s Forum said that it organised the “Dialogue Forum” to “raise awareness of the 2013 Draft Constitution for interested members of the community and representatives of Catholic Women’s League  branches in the Central/Eastern and Western Division,” including youth.

The briefing was given at the invitation of the Catholic women’s Forum.  On Wednesday  afternoon  the Attorney-General briefed the NGO coalition.

The Attorney-General conducted another briefing session, with the Rural Advisory Councillors, Roko Tuis, and other Provincial Administrators on April 4.

“The PM’s decision to extend the consultation period gives us an excellent opportunity to talk about the draft constitution and necessary to dispel myths and misinformation and to reassure people. It is very important for the citizens of Fiji to understand the draft constitution and to hear the rationale for its provisions,” the Attorney-General said.

The Attorney-General’s Chambers will hold more briefing sessions in the Western and Northern Divisions during this consultation period, which ends on April 26.
