FPP Proposes Amendments to Dialogue Bill


The Forum of Political Parties (FPP) has proposed some amendments to the National Dialogue Bill but says it “fully supports” the process. The National Dialogue Bill based on Constitutional and Institutional Reforms, Separation of Powers and Judicial Independence, Tolerance, Civility in Politics, Public Order Act (PoA), Electoral Reforms and Political Parties Bill has received dissent from opposition political parties and civil society organizations, some of whom believe this was an avenue for stifling people’s freedoms. During a press briefing held this afternoon at Mika Lodge in Jesmodine, Lusaka today, FPP chairperson Jackson Silavwe said they had resolved that section 5B of the Dialogue Bill be amended to increase representation of registered political parties outside Parliament to the National Dialogue Forum to three (3) per political party.
