Minister of Sports Moses Mawere is confident FAZ will meet the March 31 deadline for aligning its constitution with FIFA Status.
FIFA will suspend FAZ if the association miss the March deadline for amending its constitution.
FAZ was on Saturday forced to defer the adoption of the FIFA driven constitution after members raised objections to certain clauses during an extra ordinary gathering in Lusaka.
In an interview, Mawere said there was nothing sinister with the deferring of the FAZ council meeting.
“Deferring the meeting does not mean council members are dragging the process. The matters of constitution making are supposed to be agreed by every member of the association,” Mawere.
“All councilors should be consulted and must be given time to digest the proposed constitution,” he said.
“As Government we are happy that councilors deliberated in a mature manner,” Mawere said.
FIFA has directed FAZ to reduce the electoral college to 80 members.
