welcomes COPAC's decision to involve CSO in observing outreach
Association of Non-Governmental Organisations in Zimbabwe (NANGO)
July 07, 2010
welcomes COPAC acceding to the involvement of civil society organisations
in observing the constitutional outreach process. On Tuesday 6 July
2010, a meeting was held between civil society and COPAC at the
Senate Chambers to engage on the issue of civil society participation
in observing the constitutional outreach meetings countrywide. Consequently,
COPAC and civil society have agreed on a number of issues to guide
the constitutional outreach meetings as outlined below:
1. Civil Society is free
to deploy observers to the constitutional outreach process.
2. All observers shall
be volunteers nominated by a member organisation of NANGO.
3. All observers
will be issued with accreditation cards identifying them, this will
be used in the event of enquiry.
4. Observers and their
organisations shall adhere to a comprehensive code of conduct to
govern the conduct and ethics of the observers agreed upon by civil
society and COPAC.
5. Civil society will
have the space to present their observations on the outreach meetings
to COPAC, channelling these through NANGO.
6. Weekly briefings will
be conducted between civil society and COPAC.
7. All civil society
organisations can conduct civic education programmes freely without
hindrance in all areas before outreach meetings are conducted.
