Zimbabwe's Tortuous Road to a New Constitution and Elections

"This situation report evaluates Zimbabwe’s constitutional reform process and the prospects of holding a credible referendum and elections in the context of the GPA. It does so in four parts: firstly, it examines the Copac constitution making process; secondly, it critically assesses SADC’s role in facilitating the implementation of the political and constitutional reform provisions of the GPA; thirdly, it examines the prospects and challenges of conducting a credible referendum to adopt and legitimise the constitution before elections; and, finally, it considers possible scenarios, assuming that Zimbabwe will hold elections with or without a new constitution."
