The review of the Fiji National Council for Disabled Persons (FNCDP) Act 1994 is seen as a historic achievement for the organisation.

FNCDP executive director Dr Sitiveni Yanuyanutawa said the review was a milestone achievement and that the council needed to go on to the next level.

“Hopefully in the next two weeks, we would be able to come up with draft legislation for disability,” Dr Yanuyanutawa said.

He said during the consultation on the review of the Act, they would also look at some other legislation related to disability such as the Social Justice Act and the Employment Relations Promulgation 2007.
