People from all walks of life have shared their views on what kind of Constitution they would like.

And Constitution Commissioner Penny Moore is pleased with the response from the public.

“It’s been heartwarming to see people that don’t normally speak preparing submissions, coming and sitting and waiting and coming up and giving a submissions that has often come from them and their families and you hear the discussions in the submissions.

They really respect the fact that they’ve been allowed to make a submission.”

Moore says this is the response they are hoping that will be reflected in the new constitution.

About 3000 submissions both written and oral were made to the Commission since the beginning of August.

The commission will now draw up a draft Constitution before the end of the year.
