Special General Meeting: FRU Constitution Passed

The Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) had its Constitution passed this afternoon after a unanimous vote by Union members at the FRU Special General Meeting which was held at the Novotel Convention Centre at Lami.

Earlier this month, representatives from the Fiji Rugby Union held consultations in Suva, Nadi and Savusavu regarding the constitution where Union representatives had the chance to share their views and opinions relating to the document which was passed today.

The vote was done through secret ballot, and the result had most representatives voting for the tabled constitution.

The result solidifies Fiji Rugby’s commitment to gaining admission back into the World Rugby Council after Fiji was suspended due to questions raised last year about its Governance structure.

Fiji Rugby Chairman, Mr. Peter Mazey shared: “Everything will be in order again and we will take this to World Rugby to be admitted into the Council. We have now achieved the goals they have set the trustees.”

“I think the important part about the process today was that it was voted by all our members. We had 26 Union representatives here and they all passed the vote.”

Mr. Mazey says World Rugby assisted in the process by providing a consultant and there was some assistance as well from New Zealand Rugby who are currently going through a similar review. He adds rugby is very much a professional operation and we need to make sure we have the best people to run it at both management and board level.

Today’s Special General Meeting was called to address the Governance and structure of the organization and specifically to talk to the Unions.

FRU will now call its Annual General Meeting to take place within the next 45 days.
