Publication of the Constitution

The Constitution of Zimbabwe was published on the 22nd May, 2013, as a Schedule to the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment (No. 20) Act, 2013 (Act No. 1 of 2013).

 

 

Commencement of the Constitution

Certain provisions of the Constitution (principally the Declaration of Rights and provisions for presidential and parliamentary elections) came into operation on the 22nd May, 2013, when Act 1 of 2013 was published;  that date was the “publication day” as defined in paragraph 1 of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution.  The provisions that came into operation then are set out in paragraph 3 of that Schedule.

The rest of the Constitution came into operation on the 22nd August, 2013, when the President was sworn in after the first elections;  this date is the “effective date” as defined in paragraph 1 of the Sixth Schedule to the Constitution.
