Happy Eighth Anniversary of Our Fijian Constitution!

Our Constitution is not a document written only for Parliament, or for the Courts, or the various legal institutions. It is a document for all Fijians!
It governs and guides our daily lives. It is always with us, sometimes in ways that are not obvious.

Under the Fijian Constitution, all Fijians are equal before the law, with equal rights and an equal voice. It does not differentiate Fijians by ethnicity or religion or socio-economic status or where they live. All Fijians have a right to education, to healthcare, to equal justice, to decent housing and basics like clean water. Our Constitution cares for the poor, the weak, the elderly and the disabled.

Over the years, we have seen our Constitution in action. We have seen how its guiding principles have helped your Government translate Fiji’s economic growth and prosperity directly into opportunities for the Fijian people.

We have seen basic services extended to the furthest reaches of our islands. We have seen a wide range of social protection programmes put in place to protect those who are most vulnerable during these trying times. We have seen development for every Fijian with networks of roads and infrastructure that rival what you would find in the developed world. That development – that commitment to every Fijian – is what is demanded by our Constitution.

Every day, it shapes our lives. Every day, it serves as a guide for those who serve us all. And every day, it makes Fiji a better place to call home!
