THE final version of the constitution will be released to the public tomorrow.
And the government will organise briefing sessions with the media, registered political parties, diplomatic corps and civil society groups to highlight where the amendments took place in the draft constitution.
Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the final document would be released for public viewing before being presented to President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau on September 6.
He said the final version would be released with the vernacular translations.
He said they were working on the iTaukei and Hindi translations. According to Mr Sayed-Khaiyum, between tomorrow and September 6, the government hopes members of the public will view the document, particularly the vernacular versions.
"When the president ascents to the constitution in September, we want to release for the first time the full translation of the two vernacular languages. There are certain words and phraseology that are in English language and may have not been equivalent in the vernacular languages," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.
"This gives people the ability to be able to verify and be able to give feedback in terms of the translation."
He said the constitution was put together following widespread consultations with thousands of submissions received.
Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said many submissions were good in terms of the technical aspects of the constitution and various other aspects were incorporated in the final version of the document.
During its release, government will organise briefing sessions with different sections of society.
He said the first invitation would be the media because they played a pivotal and crucial role in dissemination of information with regards to the constitution.
"Many people are already familiar with the draft version so we will be highlighting where the amendments took place in the draft constitution."
He said a separate session would be organised for civil society groups, another session with registered political parties and the fourth session would be for diplomatic corps.
