The NCC Act

The NCC was established under an Act of Parliament, i.e., Act No. 19 of 2007. The Act gives legal powers to the NCC to debate, recommend and adopt recommendations from the Mung’omba Draft Constitution and Report.

The Act gives the Conference a unique way of adopting the National Constitution. In the past, all Constitutional Review Commission recommendations were adopted by government through Government white papers. However, the creation of the NCC has provided Zambia with a unique opportunity to provide a Constitution that shall incorporate people’s views, demands and aspirations. The NCC has the widest stakeholder representation.
