LABASA is the way Fiji should be, says Constitution Commission chairman Professor Yash Ghai after describing the 115 submissions at the Civic Centre Building yesterday as "constructive and to the point".
Despite the geographical conditions, transportation problems and the short duration of the commission's visit to the northern town, Prof Ghai said people made an effort to be present at the venue.
"I am really happy with the submissions we've heard so far because it doesn't boil up too much tensions and disagreement," Prof Ghai said.
"People are very constructive and straight to the point and also there are not much repetition of submissions."
Prof Ghai said he wished the commission could spend more time in the north but they were behind with their schedule.
"I only wish we had more time in the north to visit all the places as complaints have been made against our short visit but it seems like we are competing with our schedule with time running out on us," he said.
"Most of the submissions are made in groups and we are really appreciative of that because they are considering our time limit."
