Sitiveni Rabuka alluded to sweeping changes to the 2013 constitution at the launch of The People’s Alliance’s election manifesto at Namosi Village, Lau­toka, on Saturday.

The PA party leader said decrees, which he claimed suppressed ba­sic human rights, including media freedom, would be repealed.

But he did not clarify whether the main features of the 2013 Constitution like equal citizenry, common national identity and secular state, would remain or go.

In the past, Mr Rabuka had spoken out against the Constitution claiming it was forced on the people.

On the same vein, he gave a glowing tribute to the 1997 Constitution, which he and then National Federation Party leader, Jai Ram Reddy, endorsed.
