Parliament sittingThe Grand Coalition on the campaign for a people driven constitution says Members of Parliament betrayed the Zambian people by passing the Constitution Amendment Bill.
Grand Coalition Chairperson Fr. Leonard Chiti has told QFM News that Members of Parliament have denied the Zambian people an opportunity to have a new constitution adopted through a referendum.
He says it is disappointing that some MPs who claim to represent the people went ahead to support a route the Zambian people rejected.
Fr. Chiti says Zambians have been very clear that they want the new constitution to be adopted through a referendum.
He states that the passage of the constitution amendment bill has given the ruling PF the leeway to amend any of the 366 clauses in the final draft constitution when the bill comes up for consideration this Thursday.
