Grand Coalition Scheme to block the Constitution Amendment Bill – Chanda

0

The Patriotic-PF has unearthed a scheme in which the Grand Coalition on the People Driven Constitution and Law Association of Zambia-Laz allegedly intend to go to court this week to block the Constitution Amendment Bill.

 

PF Media and Publicity Vice Chairperson Sunday Chanda has charged that such schemes by the Grand Coalition and Laz will only serve to frustrate efforts to give Zambians a new constitution .

 

Mr Chanda said this at a press briefing in Lusaka.

 

He said the PF government is committed to delivering a new constitution to Zambians.

 

 

 

Mr Chanda says while government has proposed to amend non-contentious issues in the constitution through parliament, it has remained consistent to subject non-contentious issues to a referendum.

 

At the same function PF member Ngande Mwanajiti refuted claims that the PF government has departed from the agenda to enact a people driven constitution.

 

Mr Mwanajiti also said parliament has power to amend non-contentious issues in the constitution.

 

But when contacted for a response Law Association of Zambia -LAZ President George Chisanga says he has not received any formal report on the resolutions of the Grand Coalition on the People Driven Constitution.
