Fiji’s CCF give detailed analysis of new constitution

At the start of the month Fiji’s newly drafted constitution was given assent into the law of the land, the first time the island country has had one since the previous constitution was scrapped by the military backed regime in 2009.

The new document has been praised, by those who say  it provides a blueprint for a democratic future.

It’s also been condemned by critics as being nothing more than a tool by which the current rulers can ensure their power is confirmed and extended.

The Citizens’ Constitutional Forum Limited (CCF) is a non-governmental organisation based in Suva with more than 10 years’ experience in community education and advocacy on Fiji’s Constitution, democracy, human rights and multiculturalism.
