    Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition
    August 25, 2011

    Zimbabwean should expect a Draft Constitution in November 2011, the Constitutional Parliamentary Committee (COPAC) said yesterday, 24 August 2011.

    Speaking during an interview with The Catalyst, a representative from COPAC stated that members of the 17 thematic committees had finished compiling the ward, district and provincial reports on the 14th of August 2011 with work on the national report expected to begin in September. Thereafter, the Committee shall start working on the draft Constitution on the 1st of October, a process which takes a period of one month. COPAC informed the Catalyst that by mid-November the Draft Constitution will be out and ready to got the Parliament for debate.

    In the past, COPAC has missed its own targets mainly due to political bickering, inadequate resources and lack of commitment particularly from ZANU PF. The Coalition hopes that political parties will remain fully committed to the implementation of the Global Peace Agreement (GPA) Article VI parties on the need to carry out people centered constitutional reform process ahead of the future elections.
