People want end to coup culture
Taken from/By: FBC News Report by: Christopher Chand
People are continuing to ask if there will be an end to coups.
The question was again posed to the Constitution Commission who was in Ba yesterday.
“A coup is illegal always will be illegal. No matter for what reason, it is still illegal.”
Commission Chair Professor Yash Ghai says while he can promise no end to the coup culture there could be solutions found to improve our socio economic development.
“Everybody seems to be tired of coups. So one of the challenges would be to see what can be done to prevent coups. Some say it should be included in the constitution but I know that it would not help.”
While many voiced their concerns about coups many more highlighted everyday problems and how life was becoming hard.
“I have to say that many of the issues that people have raised with us are not political issues. They are very personal issues and many deal with livelihood issues.”
The challenge now is for the Commission to complete the process and hand a draft constitution for Fiji’s future.
