August 8, 2012 7:46 pm

Strong submissions have been made to the Constitutional Commission at its public hearings.

A good amount of the submissions at the Lami Catholic Hall yesterday called for the return of the 1997 constitution.

One such submission was from Sepesa Niumataiwalu who says nothing is wrong with the 1997 Constitution but improvements should be considered.

“I think the 1997 constitution should be reinstated but with amendments to certain clauses”

Tevita Tabalailai made a call for iTaukei to be adopted as the official language of Fiji.

“The i-Taukei language is to become the national language. It should be taught from the primary level right to university level so that everybody that wish to be a citizen of Fiji must make an effort to understand.”

Meanwhile –another citizen – Nikotimo Naulumatua touched on an issue that’s being debated around the world…should Fiji legalize same sex marriages?

“In my belief – it is not right to have same sex marriages. I wonder where that law came from?”

The Commission will be in Navua tomorrow to conduct public hearings in the area.
