If they don't follow the constitution then they will go to prison.

Those are the words of Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama after the Fiji Council of Trade Unions General Secretary Attar Singh said that they reject the government's draft constitution and the process for its implementation.

When questioned by Fijivillage, Commodore Bainimarama said if FICTU does not like the constitution, they just have to follow it.

He said if that is not done then they will go to prison for not following the constitution.

Attar Singh said the best option for Fiji is for people to call for the Ghai draft and the related processes to continue.

He said by dumping the Ghai draft and introducing its own draft, the government has made it clear that it wishes to continue its illegitimate rule.

Singh said FICTU cannot support this document and the process for comments and submissions.
