Referendum on new discredited Constitution possible by September – Zanu PF

ZIMBABWE may still hold a referendum on a new constitition in September even though the process is behind schedule, said Munyaradzi Mangwana, a co- chairman of the country’s inter-party parliamentary committee.\r\n

“We lost one month but still think it’s possible,” Mangwana told reporters today in Harare, the capital. ‘‘When we came up with September, we took the shortage of funds into account, so we should still be able to meet the deadline.’’

A constitution must be agreed to before elections can take place, according to a power-sharing agreement between President Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change.
