The Global Political Agreement facilitation team says it is committed to the completion of the constitution and awaits the final report from deliberations currently underway.

South African facilitation team spokesperson, Lindiwe Zulu, who is also the International Relations Adviser to South African President Jacob Zuma, told the reporters that there has been constant feedback with the negotiators.

Zulu said her team awaits the final report from the committee tasked to deal with the constitution after the 2nd All Stakeholders' Conference held between the 21st and 23rd of October last year.

"There has been some work that the committee is working on since the 2nd all stakeholders. We are in constant contact with the negotiators," she said.

The parties are reported to have been engaged over sticking issues in the COPAC draft constitution while the nation awaits the completion of the document which should be tabled for a referendum.

If the document is adopted, the country is expected to hold elections under the new supreme law although the delays do not stop Zimbabwe from going to the polls using the Lancaster House constitution.
