Lubinda Confirms Draft Constituion Will Be Delayed


The government has agreed to allow for more consultations on the draft constitution. This follows consultations with President Edgar Lungu and various political parties under the auspices of the Zambia Centre for Interparty Dialogue (ZCID).

Mr. Lubinda said after consideration of the various requests from various stakeholders, particularly ZCID, government has decided to delay the publication of the draft bill in order to give further opportunity for the stakeholders to make further submissions and to enrich the constitution making process.

Mr. Lubinda said as a consequence, the revised roadmap for the constitution making process will be made and communicated to the public in due course.
