PM disappointed with SDL submissions
August 12, 2012 7:16 pm
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has expressed his disappointment at the submissions made by the SDL party.
Bainimarama says it goes against everything the government is trying to do for the people of Fiji.
“I can’t believe that these guys will ever come up with this after all we’ve been through. Since 2006, one would have thought that we have matured politically especially with this group of people. My comment is that if they don’t have anything to give to the people of Fiji and this is the proposal they have, then we should attack this proposal from all quarters. And then as a political party, they should think very seriously about their proposal and either change it of they should just wind up and go home.”
The Prime Minister is calling on everyone to think positive, and make constructive contributions towards the making of the new constitution.
“This is the one chance in a million and let’s not muck it up. Those of us who are going to give our submissions to the Constitution Commission, let’s not muck it up for our kids. Our grandchildren might not be able to go up and voice issues concerning them. But to those of us that go, let’s not muck it up for ourselves and for the future of Fiji.”
The Constitution Commission will continue with hearing the submissions from the public today.
