Friday, December 06, 2013

Update: 10:21AM PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has opened the 15th Attorney General's Conference by saying he is very proud of the new Constitution.

With less than 10 months remaining before the country goes to the polls, the PM reiterated that for the first time, Fiji would vote under a system where every vote has an equal count.

He said for the first time ever, the Constitution was dispersed to the people in English, Hindi and the iTaukei language.

"Above all, of course, the Constitution lays the foundation for our new democracy based on the most fundamental democratic principle of all that all men and women are created equal and have the same rights and obligations," Commodore Bainimarama said.
