The Constitution Parliamentary Select Committee (COPAC) finally adopted the draft charter on Thursday. It will be presented to parliament next week for debate.
COPAC co-chairs Douglas Mwonzora (MDC-T) and Paul Mangwana (ZANU PF) told journalists in Harare that once the report is adopted by the House of Assembly, a publicity exercise to inform and educate Zimbabweans on the contents of the draft will be launched.
Mwonzora told SW Radio Africa that the draft constitution will be printed in all the eleven official languages and also in Braille, for distribution nationwide.
This process is expected to take a month after which the GPA principals will announce a date for the holding of a referendum. All the parties have endorsed the draft and are expected to campaign for a ‘Yes’ at the referendum.
