    Zimbabwe constitution

    Harare - Zimbabwe has
    finished work on the draft
    of a new constitution to
    pave the way for new
    elections, Finance Minister
    Tendai Biti said on Wednesday, more than
    three years after the
    process started. Biti told lawmakers that the
    process of writing the draft
    had been "tortuous" and
    "acrimonious", but that "at
    the end of the day we came
    up with a constitution". "Indeed history has been
    written in the last few
    weeks," he said while
    presenting his mid-term
    budget. A new constitution is a key
    condition of reforms
    agreed in 2008 when
    President Robert Mugabe
    was forced into a power-
    sharing deal with his arch- rival Morgan Tsvangirai to
    avoid a descent into conflict
    after a violent presidential
    election. The document will be
    subject to a referendum
    before elections can be
    organised, possibly next
