Each constitutional outreach
team will have a reporting group representing the three unity government
parties, with one to serve as primary rapporteur while the other
two will verify the reports of public meetings
revision process was back on track Friday following a compromise
between the three parties in government and donors on the issue
of rapporteurs, which was threatening to derail the process.
Sources in the parliamentary
committee responsible for redrafting the constitution said outreach
teams will soon be deployed.
The United Nations Development
Program assured the unity government today that it would continue
to finance the revision process, sources said.
Committee Co-Chairman Douglas Mwonzora said each of the 70 outreach
teams set to collect public opinion in the coming phase of the exercise
will have a three-person reporting group including a representative
of the ZANU-PF party of President Robert Mugabe, the Movement for
Democratic Change formation of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai,
and the MDC grouping of Deputy Prime Minister Arthur Mutambara.
One of the three will
be the primary rapporteur, while the other two political party representatives
will verify the reports produced, Mwonzora said.
