THE Constitution Commission is optimistic of completing its public hearings by early next month.
Commission chairman Professor Yash Ghai said they had covered the west and other parts of Fiji.
"We would have been to every place and before we finish the public hearings sometime in early October," Prof Ghai said.
The commission is expected to move to the outer islands towards the end of this month.
Prof Ghai said they were grateful that people had come forward to make submissions on their views and what they wished to be included in Fiji's new laws.
"We are getting a lot of views from people on what they would like to see in the future of Fiji," Prof Ghai said.
He said submissions had covered a wide range of issues which showed people were concerned with problems affecting their livelihoods.
He said they had heard many narratives of people's lives and livelihood issues but what they had not received were the broad framework within which State and society should operate, the relationship between society and State and organised groups within society.
"What are things that are appropriately dealt with within society, within families and what are the appropriate issues or mandate for the State?" Prof Ghai said.
