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.
