You are invited to object or support amendments to the constitution by providing comment below. Should you be at a loss for words, read the live input or documents below the form. Feel free to copy and paste into the message area provided.   Closing date is midnight 15 June 2018.

It is important to note this is not a petition but is the first step in an essential Participative Democracy process. And here’s the best bit; as each comment is immediately sent as a unique email to the designated government representative, comments must, by law, be individually acknowledged and considered by the Government. Had this been a petition, they would treat it as a single comment.

By using this service you ensure an accurate record is held by civil society (on our encrypted database) so government cannot fudge facts and figures. This process forms a solid foundation for a legal case should the necessity arise.
