Modi Praise For New 2013 Laws

The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi yesterday commended the Fijian Government and the 2013 Constitution.
Mr Modi acknowledged the conduct of the election of a new parliament and the inclusiveness of the 2013 Constitution.

He made these remarks while addressing embers of Fiji’s Parliament in the House of Representatives in Suva yesterday.

“The honour to be among you, to speak to this new Parliament, in celebration of democracy and to reaffirm our friendship. India is a nation of more than a billion; Fiji a nation of a million,” Mr Modi said.

“In both nations, we have vested power in our people. Your Constitution begins with ‘We, the people of Fiji’, ours begins with the same simple words, ‘We, the people of India’.

“And, what a Constitution you have framed! It is a constitution that not only guarantees the freedoms and rights of the citizens, but also to ensure their basic needs and empower them.
