Commodore Bainimarama told Radio Tarana the draft is being toughened up in that regard.(Land)

1093 submissions received on Fiji regime’s draft constitution

Posted at 03:35 on 22 May, 2013 UTC

The Fiji government says it has received about a thousand submissions on its draft constitution.

The government has been collating views on its draft which replaces that of the dumped Constitution Commmission document, based on more than 7,000 submissions.

The Prime Minister Commodore Frank Bainimarama has reiterated the regime’s draft has listened to the people in relation to land rights following fears that the draft did not guarantee indigenous people’s rights.

Commodore Bainimarama told Radio Tarana the draft is being toughened up in that regard.

He says the new constitution is a massive job and the government is not prepared to cut corners.

“We are in the process of going through the submissions we’ve received on the draft constitution. I have been informed by our legal team that we have over 1093 submissions and there are quite a few ideas to consider.”

Commodore Bainimarama says the government is still hoping to finalise the constitution next month.

  1. Bainimarama is not ashamed to tell lies anymore. No wonder he is breeding lies amongst the government workers.

  2. ” I have been informed by my legal team” Bai thats an illegal team.and stop the BULLSHIT.

  3. We fijians dont own an inch of land in Fiji. What the fuk you all harping about?

    You are mere CUSTODIANS of the land.

    You cant sell it.

    You cant mortgage it to get a loan from a bank so that you can cultivate it.

    You cant trade/barter it.

    However, you can lease it, like all other leasee, and cultivate it but you will have to pay lease money for it, like many other farmers?

    We come into this world believing that we the indigenous fijians have all the land in Fiji atleast 95% but this is just a mere infringement of our thoughts.

    Full stop.
