FIJI is on the right path towards democracy.
And the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma in welcoming the 2013 Constitution says it's good that Fiji has one.
Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said they were grateful that government kept its promise for a new Constitution before the general elections in September next year.
"Fiji needs a democratic government and we are on the right path to achieve that," Mr Nawadra said.
When asked of his view on the content of the Constitution, Mr Nawadra said he had not read the document.
"I can't comment on the content because I don't have time to read it.
"But I am glad we have a Constitution that will guide us through democracy."
Mr Nawadra added the church was optimistic that people would work together and put aside their differences for a better nation.
He said with the Constitution in place, it would be possible for the nation to move forward as expected by the government.
President Epeli Nailatikau gave his assent to the 2013 Constitution at Government House last Friday.
The country's fourth Constitution, the supreme law of the land, came into effect on September 8.
Ratu Epeli said the new Constitution was a blueprint for the future direction of Fiji.
