A WEEK-LONG awareness program on the constitutional consultation process is in progress on Taveuni.
The program is organised by a group of government officials and the Cakaudrove Provincial Council office.
Roko tui Cakaudrove Ro Aca Mataitini said the program was basically aimed at informing grassroots people on the new constitution process.
We are visiting villages and settlements on the island to inform people of governments plans on the new constitution, Ro Aca said.
People are also being informed about the Peoples Charter for Change, Peace and Progress and the types of decrees in the country.
A lot of rural-dwellers dont have any idea about the new constitution process and government policies and its only proper we visit and tell them.
