The Grand Coalition on the Campaign for the People Driven Constitution is disappointed with government’s muted response to its submitted counter proposal for adopting the country’s new constitution.
Coalition Chairperson Leonard Chiti sid they are however not surprised that after promising to respond to the proposal in two weeks time, which has already elapsed, the PF government is still silent.Father Chiti said the Grand Coalition has learnt in the 3 years and some months of the PF government that this is typical of the PF.
He told Qfm News that the Grand Coalition strongly believes there is no political-will on the part of the PF government to adopt the country’s new constitution by the popular demand of a national referendum.
Father Chiti states that this is why his Coalition, the Church and the civil society do not trust that the PF government will ever walk its talk as regards the enactment of a people driven constitution before the 2016 general elections.
He has however noted that members of the Grand Coalition still remain resolute on the goal to make certain that the country has a new constitution that reflects the wishes of the people before next year’s elections.
