AS the public submissions for Fiji's new constitution came to an end yesterday, the Constitution Commission has received more than 2752 submissions so far.
This was confirmed to this newspaper by commission member Professor Christina Murray.
However, the figure does not include submissions through the post and via electronic email.
The commission also clarified that the figure was not final as they had yet to return with the number of submissions made during the Rotuma and outer islands visits.
Professor Murray said they received a rich array of submissions that gave a clear sense of the different visions and concerns of the citizens of Fiji. "Now we need to build on this to create a constitution that all the people of Fiji will accept," she said.
Professor Murray said not everyone agreed with some matters but there was agreement that government should consult the people regularly and be more responsive to their needs.
