THE National Federation Party is concerned with what it claims is the rising cost of living and food prices.
Its working committee meeting in Nadi last weekend noted certain things with regards to the country's economy.
The party said there was a need for more private investment to create jobs and generation of economic activity.
Also, the party said the Bill of Rights in the Constitution contradicted the values of human rights as enshrined in the preamble to the Constitution and diluted the essence of accountability and transparency.
Furthermore, the party also expressed concern on the continuation of some decrees despite the Constitution being in place now.
Also, the party said it was concerned with the poor quality of Hindustani translation of the Constitution, saying it made a mockery of the Hindustani language.
It called on the government to appoint an independent Constitutional Commission in consultation with political parties to prepare a revised draft Constitution based on universal principles for consideration by an inclusive Constituent Assembly.
The NFP's working committee also called for the appointment of an independent Electoral Commission to prepare electoral regulations for the conduct of parliamentary elections as soon as possible.
