The Foundation for Democratic Process has demanded for a clear roadmap from government on the new constitution.
FODEP Executive Director, Mcdonald Chipenzi says it is not enough for government to just promise to deliver a new constitution without a roadmap.
He has told Muvi TV news that Zambians are anxious to know when a committee of experts tasked with delivering the constitution will be constituted.
Justice Minister, Sebastian Zulu recently stated that the constitution making process is not about the document but its quality.
President Michael Sata promised to enact a new constitution for the s country within three months. In his inaugural address to Parliament , President Sata said that he would constitute a committee of experts to analyse the recommendations of all previous constitutional review commissions and come up with an inclusive draft law.
“We are committed to delivering a new people-driven constitution within 90 days,” said Mr Sata who campaigned on a populist platform and was looking to capitalise on MMD’s failure to enact a new constitution after a lengthy process that gobbled billions of Kwacha in allowances to the NCC delegates.
