Fiji's leaders to release new constitution

Updated 10 January 2013, 23:01 AEST

Fiji's interim leaders have given a joint televised address to the nation, in which they've promised to release the country's new constitution at the end of the month.

Last month police seized draft copies prepared by the country's Constitution Commission, despite widespread calls that they be put out for public consultation.

Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama and President Ratu Ipeli Nalatikau have said a new version will be released at the end of the month - one which speaks to Fiji's current social and governmental needs.

Presenter: James Oaten

Speaker: Ratu Ipeli Nalatikau, President of Fiji
