The Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) over its 25-year history has become a strong and cohesive regional bloc and is now becoming a vibrant economic grouping, with great potential, says Fiji’s Minister for Industry and Trade Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
Fiji Trades Union Congress president Daniel Urai said that the supremacy of the new Constitution must be valued and respected.
He made this comment in their submission to the Constitution Commission.
“There is no point stating that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and then having the military abrogate the Constitution,” Urai said.
He said the new Constitution must clearly state that there shall be no reserved powers bestowed on any office under this new Constitution.
“The Constitution must state that this new constitution cannot be amended, removed or abrogated by illegal means or any other means. The only amendment allowed would have to be under the provisions provided for under the constitution.”
