Zimbabwe: Overview of the Constitution Making Process
COPAC has issued this overview of the Constitution Making Process. Zimbabweans are in the historic process of drafting a new Constitution. The process is being carried out as one of the major deliverables of the Global Political Agreement (GPA) which was signed on 15 September 2008. The three major political parties, ZANU PF, MDC-T and MDC, agreed to draft a new constitution for Zimbabwe as part of the country's rebuilding exercise. Seventeen Thematic Areas have been identified to guide the current constitution making process. Each Thematic Committee will organise data collected from the outreach in its thematic area in preparation for drafting of the constitution.
