Lawmakers in Zimbabwe are on Tuesday expected to table a constitutional bill which will become the country’s supreme law if it gets majority approval in the House of Assembly and the Senate.

According to Parliamentary and Constitutional Affairs Minister Eric Matinenga, all lawmakers are supposed to attend the important parliamentary sessions as both houses resume sitting Tuesday.

Matinenga said the bill contains provisions of the country’s parliamentary constitution committee’s draft constitution which was overwhelmingly adopted by Zimbabweans in a referendum a month ago.

Zimbabwe is expected to hold a general election under a new constitution sometime this year.
