AS part of her Western Division tour, Minister for Women, Social Welfare and Poverty Alleviation Dr Jiko Luveni took time out to personally deliver pocket-sized copies of Fiji's new Constitution.
Dr Luveni visited Volivoli and Vatukarasa in Nadroga where more than 200 people received the new copies.
She said this was part of the government's initiative to ensure people were well informed about the new Constitution.
"Copies of the Constitution in English, Hindi and iTaukei languages are distributed to ensure that all the Fijians are well informed about their rights and responsibilities under the 2013 Constitution," she said.
Volivoli Village leader Mesulame Gavidi applauded the government's effort in providing the new Constitution in three different languages.
"We are grateful to the Bainimarama government for providing us with the copies of the new Constitution into iTaukei language, especially as it's convenient for rural communities, to understand and take ownership of the new Constitution," he said.
"The people of Volivoli applaud the new Constitution, as it protects the rights of every Fijian and it also recognises the rights of children, senior citizens and persons with disabilities."
