New Zambian Draft Bill To Be Published Next Week, Justice Ngosa Simbyakula.
It was earlier disclosed this week by Justice Ngosa Simbyakula that a new constitution draft bill will be published next week.
The publication will include the non-contentious issues.
Hon. Simbyakulima who is Acting President and Acting Chief Government Spokesperson revealed this to a multitude of journalists at State House in Lusaka today during an update of Cabinet resolutions.
Cabinet approved the introduction of the Referendum Amendment Bill of 2015 in Parliament to amend the Referendum Act of 1967 in order to bring it in conformity with the constitution for the eligibility criterion of voting in a national referendum.
Dr. Simbyakula further said whereas the constitution requires 50 percent of all persons entitled to be registered as voters to vote in a referendum, the Referendum Act provides for persons registered as voters to vote in a referendum.
