The Technical Committee on Drafting the Zambian Constitution has extended the period for the informal public consultative process on the first draft constitution by fifty days from 1st August to 19th September, 2012.
Constitution Conventions Coordinator Rueben Lifuka tells QFM News in a statement that the extension is merely for the benefit of members of the public that relying on the translated popular version of the first draft constitution to receive and study the document before submitting their comments.
Mr Lifuka said this because the Committee has encountered some delays in producing and translating a popular version of the first draft constitution into seven major local languages.
He says the translated versions are in the process of being printed and will be available for distribution to members of the public soon.
Mr Lifuka adds that the Technical Committee will work with relevant stakeholders in the constitution making process to ensure that copies of the translated popular version are distributed to all the ten provinces.
