THE Constitution Commission is calling on citizens who are mailing their submissions to get them in by October 15.
Constitution commissioner Penelope Moore yesterday said though the deadline was set for yesterday (October 10), they were giving people until the 15th to mail their submissions in.
"We are also asking if those who are hand delivering and emailing their submissions to have them in by the end of the week," said Ms Moore.
"These dates are the absolute last because we need to digitise them and have a chance to read them before we continue with our work."
Ms Moore who just returned from Vanua Levu said the submissions heard in the Friendly North were similar to those in Viti Levu.
"I guess they are rather similar but we have heard some good ones like including women in decision making bodies like parliament and the need for streamlining of provincial councils and district offices," she said.
"We also heard a few submissions on the equality in rural development and the support for farming."
The Constitution Commission will move to Lau and Rotuma next for its public submissions and Ms Moore said there were a number of things they expected to hear about from these outer islands.
"I suppose like the Kia and Rabi communities we will be hearing about the realities and difficulties of living in these isolated communities." she said.
