Rabuka com­mended

Fiji Sun - - Comments -

Tukai Lag­o­ni­lakeba , Nadi Right­fully so, Si­tiveni Rabuka must be com­mended for con­demn­ing those po­lit­i­cal party lead­ers in their not mak­ing a point to at­tend the Gov­ern­ment or­gan­ised cel­e­bra­tions of our Con­sti­tu­tion Day at Al­bert Park on Wednes­day.

Petty pol­i­tics aside he re­sponded pos­i­tively to the in­vi­ta­tion of our Prime Min­is­ter Voreqe Bain­i­marama to be part of the many in­vited present at the cel­e­bra­tions on the now newly re­fur­bished Al­bert Park. The for­mer prime min­is­ter has paved the way show­ing ma­tu­rity that he will rise above oth­ers in the na­tional in­ter­est and do the right thing. But Rabuka has stopped short to ex­plain what re­ally is wrong with our 2013 Con­sti­tu­tion that he and other op­po­si­tion po­lit­i­cal par­ties from the SODELPA, NFP and FLP have given it that name in opt­ing for their pref­er­ence of the 1997 Con­sti­tu­tion. The 1997 Con­sti­tu­tion was re­jected by the ma­jor­ity Fi­jians who voted against its two ar­chi­tects in the 1999 elec­tion Si­tiveni Rabuka of the So­qosoqo ni Vakavulewa ni Taukei (SVT) and Jai Ram Reddy from the Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion Party where as our world ac­claimed 2013 Con­sti­tu­tion was over­whelm­ingly given the thumps up by ma­jor­ity Fi­jians in a one sided land­slide elec­tions vic­tory by the rul­ing Fi­jiFirst Party in our demo­cratic elec­tions of Septem­ber 17, 2014. Our 2013 Con­sti­tu­tion must be given ev­ery op­por­tu­nity and sup­ported by all Fi­jians to en­sure it de­liv­ers on its en­tirety to ben­e­fit every­one who calls Fiji their home.
