MEMBERS of the public have been advised to limit their submissions and take into consideration the number of people waiting to make their voices heard.
Constitution Commission member Professor Satendra Nandan raised this issue after a man from Rakiraki made a submission of 67 pages last week.
"While we welcome everyone's views, they also need to take into account the people waiting in line who want to make their submissions as well," Prof Nandan said.
He said a person from Ra went on for one and a half hours and gave 42 people no chance to have a say.
"We have to suggest, please, cut short your submissions so that others have a chance," Prof Nandan said.
"Issues submitted vary from social issues to political issues, land issues, good citizenship, civic education, praise for positive and progressive policies from the present government, access for disabled people in buses and some even constantly question corruption in the public and private sectors.
"However, they need to limit their submissions to what's really affecting their lives."
He said significant submissions were made by women seeking representation in all decision-making bodies, not just Parliament, but also in the private and public domain.
He said submissions should not be lengthy, just as they understand the issues and the solutions they want to be embedded in the new laws.
