Constitution’s formulation to take up time until late 2018!

The formulation of the new constitution and its presentation to parliament will take up time until late 2018, according to Ravaya.

The newspaper has quoted a spokesman for the steering committee of the Constitutional Assembly as saying that the formulation of the
constitution could likely be a failure due to the 2019 election.

He said his personal opinion was that the constitution should be formulated by mid-2018.

The steering committee has decided at a meeting on November 19 to conclude the debate on its report by December 02, followed by a debate on the six subcommittee reports in January.

The steering committee will then meet to take a final decision, said the newspaper.
