The Government has now published the draft Constitution of Zambia after persistent demands by civil society and other members of public. There is no roadmap on what happens next. What is clear is that we are not going to have a new constitution before 2016 because the time has run out. The Patriotic Front (PF) may choose to pursue a selective amendment approach if they can reach consensus with the opposition. However, the most optimistic outcome would be a referendum at the same time as the general election. That too is highly unlikely because the current draft is still quite a flawed documents in many parts. And of course PF disagrees with many parts within it.
