Local government Minister Stephen Kampyongo has called on PF leaders to read the amended constitution and ensure that they understand the clauses.
Mr Kampyongo said there is need for leaders to understand the constitution because there are clauses which if not properly understood would lead to misinterpretation of the law.
He said leaders should be knowledgeable enough about the new constitution so that they can enlighten the people who do not understand some of the clauses such as the 50%+1 clause.
He said some people might not understand why the country should go for a rerun in an event that non of the candidates fail reach the required thrashhold of 50%+1 vote. He also said people should be made to understand that a running mate will not appear on the ballot paper.
And Mr. Kampyongo said some clauses were shelved because the country did not have the resources needed to implement the clauses.
He said the Provincial Assemblies clause would require new infrastructure in all the 10 Provinces for holding meetings and that government did not have resources to build 10 such buildings currently.
Mr. Kampyongo said this when he addressed councillors from Mufulira Municipal council.
