A CARETAKER government should be appointed immediately after the promulgation of the new constitution according to the timeline provided in the decree.
This was a submission made by the National Federation Party to the Constitution Commission in Suva last Saturday.
NFP general secretary Parmod Rae said the caretaker government should then appoint the Judicial Services Commission, Constitutional Officers Commission, Public Service Commission and Electoral Commission.
"All position holders appointed by the Judicial Services Commission, Constitutional Officers and Electoral Commission should vacate their offices and new appointments be made in the various commissions," he said in the submission.
"The Public Service Commission should also review all appointments made since 2006 to ensure that merit is upheld."
Mr Rae said the formation of the Constituent Assembly as provided in the decree was unacceptable.
