Zanu PF spokesperson, Cde Rugare Gumbo, said by the end of next month, they hope to have completed the drafting of the constitution and by end of September they will hold a referendum followed by harmonised elections, possibly before the year ends.

He said issues also discussed included the Livingstone Troika meeting and the SADC Extraordinary meeting in Windhoek, Namibia.

Cde Gumbo added that Zanu PF adheres to the spirit and letter of the GPA as originally signed by the three principals and rejects those who want to add or subtract from it as this is tantamount to re-negotiating the GPA.

The Politburo was also briefed by Cde Patrick Chinamasa on the possible electoral reform in keeping in line with the GPA.
