Lost in translation?

The new Constitution gives the role of Commander in Chief to the President, but states that this is a ceremonial function and responsibility.

“(3)  The President shall perform the ceremonial functions and responsibilities as the Commander-in-Chief of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.”

Does the Fijian version say exactly the same thing?

“(3)  Na Peresitedi me vakaitavi ena ivakarau vakaivalu ka Komada Liuliu ni Mataivalu e Viti.”
