    The Constitutional Select Committee (COPAC)
    May 10, 2012

    The Constitution Parliamentary Committee (COPAC) wishes to advise Zimbabweans that the consultations that have been taking place on the First COPAC Draft Constitution as mandated by the Management Committee have now been complete and the feedback is now available.

    The Select Committee will therefore meet on Monday the 14th of May 2012 to consider the issues raised during the consultations. Thereafter, a Second COPAC Draft Constitution will be completed and submitted to the Management Committee for its review. This Second COPAC Draft Constitution will incorporate issues which the Management Committee resolved to 'unpack' during its own consultations as well as any matter arising out of the feedback received.

    Once the completed Second COPAC Draft Constitution has been adopted by the Management Committee, it will be availed to the people of Zimbabwe for broader consultations, culminating in the Second All Stakeholders Conference and the Referendum. A Final COPAC Draft Constitution will incorporate changes that the people of Zimbabwe, through their representatives at the Second All Stakeholders Conference, would have made to the Draft agreed to buy the coalition partners in the GNU through the current consultations.

    COPAC wishes to thank Zimbabweans for their patience. The Committee is mindful of the need to have the Constitution making process concluded as a matter of urgency.
