Fiji Constitution Day sparks renewed calls for a review

From , 5:02 am on 11 September 2017

Fiji's Citizen's Constitutional Forum says there's still much disagreement over the country's constitution.

Fiji marked the introduction of its fourth constitution last Thursday with a Constitution Day public holiday.

The 2013 Constitution was brought in by the Frank Bainimarama government ahead of elections in 2014 but it remains a controversial document after an earlier draft was dumped.

The forum's chief executive Bulutani Mataitawakilai says he is urging the government to consider a review of the constitution, as many people want to see some changes.
