4:35 am on 9 August 2012

Fiji's Constitution Commission has made plans to collect ideas for a new constitution from people from Fiji living overseas.

The Commission started public hearings in Suva this week and is collecting submissions over the next two months.

Commission chairman, Professor Yash Ghai, says Fiji's diplomatic missions abroad are among those the Commission will approach for help.

"We are making direct contact with associations of Fiji diaspora. We will soon have our website, next week, which will have a lot of information and they can send us their submissions, so we will follow that very vigorously."
