FIJI needs a responsive government with leaders who fulfil their promises to the people.
A Cakaudrove chief made the statement in his submission to the Constitution Commission at Buca Village last week.
Tui Kama, Ratu Seru Taqali, said the constitution should have provisions that ensured the government was more responsive to the peoples' needs.
He told the commission that politicians and government officials had a tendency of making promises they don't fulfil.
Ratu Seru said on a few occasions, government officials visited villages, made promises and forgot them after leaving the village.
Prof Christina Murray told Ratu Seru the commission had taken note of his views and that many other citizens had shared the same opinion about a having a responsive government.
