THE Constitution Commission is satisfied with the submissions received from members of the public over the past three months.

Commission chairman Professor Yash Ghai, at a press briefing yesterday, said they were optimistic of putting together a constitution through what the people had submitted to solve Fiji's deep rooted problems.

"We have received more than 3000 views from all different people, teachers, lawyers, non-government organisations, political parties and religious groups," Prof Ghai said.

He said a lot of people had doubted their work and did not trust the Commission to carry out an inclusive consultations.

However, he said that gradually changed as people started to come out in the last few days to make their view heard to the Commission.
