Crisis Coalition to launch Constitutional Barometer

 

The Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition will on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 launch the Constitutional Barometer which seeks to interrogate the level of implementation of Zimbabwe’s constitution adopted in 2013.

The Constitutional Barometer also seeks to encourage multi-sector cooperation, stimulate more robust implementation of the constitution and promote a policy analysis tool for civic society, government and various stakeholders.

The coalition pointed that inadequate public participation in constitutional processes, delays in implementation and alignment of laws, the retention of unconstitutional legislation and practices and routine violations of the constitution are also some of the factors that create a constitutional crisis in the country.

It argues that constitutional democracy requires adequate public participation in constitutional processes and political will from political players.
